SubjectResistance; friction; surface roughness
AbstractThis report describes a series of model tests and laboratory experiments carried out in the ice tank at IMD, between September 1986 and February 1987, for Melville Shipping Limited, and sponsored by the Transportation Development Centre. The purpose of the tests was to study the effect of friction between the ship model and the ice on the resistance measurements in level ice. The model test results show the effect of surface finish, characterized by friction coefficient or surface roughness, on resistance, within the range of parameters covered.
