TEST AND EVALUATION OF ICE TRANSITING BOW FORMS FOR GREAT LAKES BULK CARRIERS

The purpose of this project was to design, test and evaluate several ice transiting bow forms for Great Lakes bulk carriers. Tasks within the project included the design of four ice transiting bow forms, the conduct of open water and ice resistance tests (level and broken ice) and an economic evaluation of the bow forms. In addition, a limited number of maneuvering tests in ice were performed along with the measurement of ice impact forces on the model.
