AbstractA series of tests were done in a cavitation tunnel using ice class propellers. The propellers were run in the wake of a nearby simulated ice blockage with a gap of approximately one millimetre between the propeller and the blockage. This simulated the hydrodynamic conditions of blockage subsequent to a partial milling of an ice piece.
