AbstractThe Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT) of the National Research Council of Canada (http://www.iot-ito.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/) has conducted physical , numerical and mathematical modeling of ship maneuvering characteristics in ice, as part of a larger effort to develop reliable modeling techniques to assist in the design of new ice-worthy vessels and in the simulation of their navigating characteristics. Preliminary tests were conducted for a range of model speeds and radii and an Experimental Uncertainty Analysis (EUA) was conducted on this test series as part of the data analysis. This report describes the model test program, and the results of the EUA. for consistency, this test series is referred to as Phase IV of the EUA.
