MODEL TESTS OF AN ARCTIC SEV OVER MODEL ICE

The model test program for the Arctic SEV (Surface Effect Vehicles) consisted of two parts. The objective of the first part was to determine the resistance of an SEV operating over ice covered water. The second part of the test program was concerned with the problems associated with parking the Arctic SEV on the ice. Each part consisted of a series of model tests conducted in the ARCTEC Ice Model Basin, Savage, Maryland, to empirically determine the desired relationships between the independent and dependent test variables.
