AbstractThis report presents the results of model experiments carried out to suport CCG's evaluations of shipping related to the proposed Voisey's Bay nickel mine. The tests included resistance experiments rubble ice on a model of a bulk carrier. The width of the rubble varied from a channel just wider than the ship to a wide channel, the width of the model basin. The results are used to predict the performance of the ship over a range of ice conditions, likely to be encountered on the coast of Labrador.
