Aker Arctic attends OMAE 2023: International Conference on Ocean, Offshore & Arctic Engineering.
Riikka Matala, Senior Research Engineer, will exchange ideas and experiences.
Riikka´s presentation summaries the key findings from our extensive research on ship’s resistance in an old brash ice channel. The research aims to improve the current old brash channel model-scale test procedure and condition for better predicting full-scale channel resistance on ships with different bow shapes. This presentation reflects the acquired understanding from the channel research to the existing Finnish-Swedish Ice Class Rules procedure for verification of sufficient ice performance for ice classes 1A – 1C through model scale tests.
