AbstractThis report looks at some of the data analysis for the project undertaken by IOT pertaining to a conventional lifeboat operating in ice. More specifically, it discusses the analysis of field trials that used to validate a mathematical model of the structural integrity of a lifeboat operating in ice. The field trials for this analysis took place in Triton, Newfoundland from in April 2009. The trials included collisions with both pack and level ice and when the lifeboat was being operated by a coxswain and remotely. The data from these trials was analysed in a program called Igor. Videos from several different cameras located on the lifeboat were also analysed. After the raw data was analysed, several graphs were plotted and the results were compared to predictions from the mathematical model.
