GLOBAL ICE FORCES AND SHIP RESPONSE TO ICE; FINAL REPT

The report is the fourth in a series of six that address ice loads, ice forces, and ship response to ice. The data for these reports were obtained during deployments of the U.S. Coast Guard Icebreaker POLAR SEA. The report describes the method used to determine global ice impact forces from strain gage measurements and includes hull girder stress calculations and impact force time histories.
