AbstractTo assist in the development of a ship manoeuvring in ice numerical model to be used in marine simulators, a comprehensive database of all existing full- and modelscale ship manoeuvring in ice tests was created. Over 120 reports were reviewed, and the state-of-the-art of icebreaking technologies along with all ?ship manoeuvring in ice? test data available in the literature were identified. These data were supplemented with that extracted from the test database of the Institute for Ocean Technology (IOT). Post-1995 test data were taken directly from published reports and pre-1995 test data were extracted from the ?Ship in Ice Performance Database Version 1.0? by Transportation Development Centre. All data were consolidated into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet ready for future analysis. This report presents the result of the literature review and describes the test database. A preliminary analysis of data given in the database is also given.
