AbstractOre carriers navigating through ice filled channels and icebreakers escorting cargo ships are two examples of ships which must manoeuvre in ice. Information about the manoeuvring ability of such ships is required for ship design, for voyage planning, and for personnel training. With numerical simulation the eventual goal, physical model tests are an essential step in determining ship manoeuvring equations and parameters.
