AbstractThis is a part of the Experimental Uncertainty Analysis (EUA) research program to develop an ITTC procedure for ice tank testing. The test program and test results for phase ll are presented in this report. All tests were performed using a model for a Canadian icebreaker "Terry Fox" (Standard IMD Icebreaker model, Scale 1:21.8). The test matrix included two (2) different types of experiments: These are: 1. Resistance experiments in ice (tests in unbroken level ice, tests in presawn ice sheets, and tests in broken ice sheets. 2. Resistance experiments in open water. The experimental program is described in this report.
