AbstractAn investigation of icebreaking propulsion system data derived from model scale test programs was undertaken and parameters relevant to the development of contact and non-contact loads were defined through this review of model tests and published analytical models of propeller-ice interaction. Also included is an analysis of parameters governing propeller-ice interaction, a dimensional analysis, and an assessment of the determination of non-contact forces.
