ICE-STRUCTURE IMPACT CONTACT LOAD TEST SETUP AND IMPACT CONTACT LOAD CALCULATION
Author : Aki Kinnunen, Maria Tikanm?ki, Pekka Koskinen
Shipping in arctic and other ice conditions is increasing. Modern propulsion systems often utilize azimuthing thrusters in their various forms. When operating azimuthing thruster equipped ships in ice conditions, the thruster will interact with ice. One such interaction type is an impact type contact of ice block and thruster. The contact causes certain loading to thruster. The contact load problem can be considered as ice impact to steel structure. In a research project related to developing Finnish-Swedish ice class rules, the impact forces due to ice contact to steel structure are dealt with a simple theoretical model and experimental approach is used for model
