AbstractFollowing the successful full-scale trials of the USCGC Healy in 2000, it was decided to conduct a complete set of resistance and propulsion, and maneuvering, model tests of the vessel for correlation with the full-scale data. The proceedings of the POAC ?01 conference (Frederking et al. 2001) contain several papers outlining the results of the full-scale trials. Jones and Moores (2002) have summarized the results of the resistance tests conducted at IOT. This report details both the resistance and propulsion model tests conducted at IOT; a second report will discuss the maneuvering tests. This report can be read in conjunction with IOT?s Standard Test Methods TM 7, Resistance in Ice, and TM 8 D1, Model Propulsion in Ice, as an example of an application of these Standards.
