AbstractThis document gives a summary of the model-scale/full-scale correlation performed on model test data generated at the National Research Council Ocean, Coastal, and River Engineering (NRC-OCRE) test facility in St. John’s in support of the evaluation of the fullscale prediction from the NRC-OCRE’s CCGS Polar Icebreaker model test result. This correlation includes ship performance predictions, i.e., resistance, propulsion and manoeuvring. The review has shown a good agreement between NRC-OCRE model test predictions and full-scale measurements. Sensitivity analysis of flexural strength on both ice resistance and ship power shows an increase of only 9.7 and 13.7 % of ice resistance and ship power, respectively, even with a 35 % strength increase.
