POLAR RESEARCH VESSEL, A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN FOR NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION, OFFICE OF OCEANOGRAPHIC FACILITIES AND SUPPORT AND DIVISION OF POLAR PROGRAMS

The study was conducted by the University of Alaska Institute of Marine Sciences on behalf of the University National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS) in cooperation with John W. Gilbert Associates, Incorportated, Boston, and ARCTEC, Incorporated, Columbia, Maryland. It includes an analysis of the needs and prospects for polar research vessels, data on performance requirements (priorities, design features, and operational capabilities), and a summary of design decisions (bow, stern, and mid-body shape, icebreaking and ramming ability, propeller and rudder configurations, machinery, hull structure, weight, stabilization, cost estimates, and pollution prevention). A number of drawings and graphs on general ship arrangement, inboard profile, outboard profile, icing stability, shell plate, and construction are presented.
