AbstractBergy Bits Impact Study is a three year study of the ship/ice interaction that is aimed at the development of software for modeling hydrodynamic interaction between shipping and these glacial ice chunks. The study will be conducted in three phases. Phases 1&2 will be a study of the proximity effects of regular shaped model ice chunks with a model ship hull to determine their hydrodynamic interaction with dedicated experiments carried out at IMD. Phase 3 experiments will involve collision of a piece of glacial ice with an instrumented panel in the IMD ice tank. Phase 4 will be the collision of a full-scale ship or barge hull with a Bergy Bit. This report outlines the construction phase for the iceberg models to be used in Phase 1 & 2 of the study.
