AbstractA series of resistance experiments in ice was performed in the IMD model ice basin to investigate the experimental error that may be expected in the results from such experiments. A 1:20 scale model of the Canadian R-class icebreaker was tested in nine sheets of EG/AD/S model ice. Typical variations in standard deviations of the resistance results for similar model and ice conditions ranged up to five percent.
