Abstract:

In North America there is a considerable amount of pressure to develop its Arctic for the extraction of natural resources such as oil, gas, and various mining products and also, to demonstrate and maintain operational sovereignity there. The decision-makers have to feel confident in the appropriate technical development related to Arctic operational capability. There is an increasing pressure to develop the methodologies related to technical progress such as ice model testing. This paper provide a short reveiw of the major problems of practical importance seen in ice model tests and interpretation of them for the CANMAR Kigoriak. The specific problems related to quality of model ice material and scaling techniques are addressed. The main questions the user of ice model tests has to address when using such tests are what kinds of ice model tests should be done how accurate are the ice mode tests are in predicting full scale results for a particular design and do the model tests show the right direction for optimizing designs
