Hybrid finite elementfinite volume based CaMEL shallow water flow solvers have been successfully extended to study wave effects on ice floes in a simplified 10 sq-km ocean domain. Our solver combines the merits of both the finite element and finite volume methods and is much more sophisticated, robust, super convergent, and is the first of its kind approach extended for studying the dynamics and dispersion of ice chunks in ocean. Apart from studying the influence of waves on rigid, non-moving ice floes, We have also successfully implemented the automatic mesh moving techniques to study the ice kinematics. We have studied the wave-ice interactions using different artificial wave forcing mechanisms impacting, movable isolated ice floes, and also uniformly placed cluster of ice floes that are free to drift.
