AbstractThe development of a model test program in support of the JRPA 6 study to determine contact and non-contact propeller-ice interaction forces on open and ducted propellers is described. The model test program was developed following analysis of underwater video records of propeller-ice interactions and an extensive database of propeller-ice interaction parameter combinations for world icebreakers.
