AbstractConventional lifeboats have not been designed to withstand ice impactloads. It is uncertain if these boats have the structural capacity to withstand a collision with either level or concentrated pack ice. The main objective of the research reported here is to determine the structural limitations of conventional lifeboats in order to help devise safe operating procedures for lifeboats in ice.
