AbstractStudy with 1/20 scale model of R-class icebreaker towed through ice of different densities, ranging from 0.80 to 0.92 Mg m}-3{. Ice used was wax-based and could be formed at different densities by varying properties of ingredients. Results showed that increasing density led to increased submergence times for ice, thus increasing chance of ice/propeller interaction. Smaller pieces of ice rose to surface more rapidly than larger. Less propeller/ice interaction for slower speed tests than for higher.
