AbstractModel hull/model ice friction was investigated through experimental friction tests on nineteen specially prepared sample boards. An increase in the addition of the paint additive Magnesium Silicate was found to increase the ice friction coefficient from about 0.01 for no additive, to about 0.2 for the maximum additive.
