Abstract: A numerical model validated by field measurements was applied to investigate the level ice performance of a double acting intervention vessel. The simulations were firstly conducted in model-scale for a direct comparison with the ice model tests carried out for this vessel. The scaling of ship speed and ice resistance was then discussed by comparing the simulation results in both full-scale and model-scale. The effect on the ship performance of the different properties of scaled model ice and full-scale sea ice was also assessed.
