AbstractIn 1991, Transport Canada and the Finnish Board of Navigation established a joint research project "JRPA #6, Propeller Ice Interaction", which had as its aim the development of a new propeller-ice interaction model. The ultimate goal was to use the model in formulating new machinery regulations for Arctic and Baltic ice class vessels. The new model was to be based on the theoretical analysis and experimental modeling of the physical phenomena involved, and of existing full-scale measurements. The main responsibility for development of a model for non-contact, hydrodynamic, loads was in Canada. These two elements were to be combined in a comprehensive propeller load prediction model. This paper describes the overall procedure in the project, the main results of each sub-project and the final results. The results are compared against full-scale measurements.
