Abstract

Compressive ice is among the most dangerous ice conditions a ship may encounter when she is sailing through ice-covered area, since she may get stuck due to additional resistance and get damaged on hull due to crushing load. However, research on this topic has been relatively rare and proper methods to evaluate the associated risk are scarce. This paper reviews the previous efforts made on this subject, especially those by model-scale tests and full-scale observations. Cases when ships encounter compressive ice in Baltic Sea are presented and summarized based on a series of previous survey. Preliminary analysis on ship-ice interaction process are presented in order to clarify the critical issues regarding ships in compressive ice. The results provide valuable insights for understanding the process and can be applied as the reference for future theoretical modelling and model scale tests related to ships in compressive ice.
