Fluid-structure interaction between an ice sheet on the water surface and a podded R-Class propeller was examined and analyzed in terms of numerical simulation using a newly enhanced unsteady timedomain, multiple body panel method model. The numerical model was validated and verified and also checked against various previous in-house experimental(More)
Propeller wake wash has been used effectively for ice management operations for years. The main uses of propeller wake wash include clearing pack ice and broken ice from protected installations and shipping channels. A numerical model of a propeller wake has been developed to simulate the effects of the wake, or jet, on ice pieces floating on the water(More)
This paper describes an overview of model tests and numerical predictions for a podded propulsor in ice. The objectives of the model tests are to understand the propeller-ice interaction phenomena and to investigate propeller performance in iced conditions. An azimuthing podded propulsor was used and the tests were designed for continuous milling(More)
