AbstractThis is a progress summary for the numerical component of Oceanide project. The overall project contains both experimental and numerical components. The experimental work started last fiscal year while the numerical component started this year. Two main numerical tasks were planned: Task 1 is to develop and demonstrate the effectiveness of Finite Elements (FE) models for a First Year (FY) ice ridge interacting with a structure. Task 2 is to validate of the numerical results and final report next year. Task 1 and 2 were scheduled for this current fiscal year and next fiscal year, respectively. The work is based entirely on the Finite Element Method (FEM); particularly explicit FEM. Explicit FEM was previously used to model ice behaviour, strength, fracture, ice blocks breaking, ice block interactions, as well as ice-structure interactions.
