    Abstract

    The objective of this paper is to present an ice friction model and implement it to ice crushing simulation. This friction model is based on thermodynamic equilibrium and enables determining the friction coefficient between ice and ice or some other material as a function of the sliding velocity and temperature. The hardness of ice is found to be an important property in the friction mechanism. Comparison of modelled friction coefficients and experimental results is made. In this paper the friction model is implemented to the modelling of the crushing of ice against offshore structures and ships.
