AbstractA numerical model of pack ice interaction with offshore structures is presented. The model is based on using a Particle-In-Cell (PIC) approach to advect the ice cover, and a Mohr-Coulomb plastic yield criterion to describe ice properties. The Zhang-Hibler (1997) numerical scheme is used to solve the momentum equations. A parametric study was conducted in order to determine the influence of shape of the structure, ice thickness, ice properties, and velocity on the resulting ice forces.
