TIME-DOMAIN ANALYSIS OF MANAGED-ICE ACTIONS ON OFFSHORE STRUCTURES
Author : Raed Lubbad and Sveinung L?set
The search for hydrocarbons in deep Arctic waters requires the use of drillships and floating production units (FPUs). Typically, these units require protection by using ice management, e.g. icebreakers battling large ice floes followed by icebreakers downstream that cut the ice into small pieces just in front of the drillship or FPU. The essence of such operations is to reduce the ice actions on the protected units by reducing the encountered ice concentration and floe sizes. One of the challenges facing the designers of Arctic offshore structures is to quantify the reduction of the ice loads as a function of the managed-ice conditions. Design codes and
