Abstract: An indoor experiment to study pancake ice growth in a wave field has been conducted in November 2001 at the ARCTECLAB of the Hamburgische SchiffbauVersuchsanstalt (HSVA). This unique facility was equipped with two distinct wave tanks in the same cold room. Two wave makers were operated independent of each other in two identical flumes. The purpose of this study was to separate the dynamic effect from the thermodynamic effect. A total of six tests were made with varying durations. In addition to the two wave tank tests, we also grew ice under calm water condition in the same room using a box with insulated walls and bottom. We collected hourly data on wave conditions: wave number and amplitude, ice conditions: surface temperature, thickness and pancake size, environmental conditions: air and water temperature, and salinity. This paper describes details of this experiment.
