Resistance and manoeuvring tests in ice of the icebreaker Sampo

Tapio Nyman

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    Two ice trials were performed with the Finnish ice-breaker Sampo in the Gulf of Bothnia in the winters of 1988 and 1989. This paper includes results from the resistance tests in level-ice and in a fairway channel, as well as from turning circle tests in level-ice. A series of ice model-tests was also performed for the same ship. The extrapolated model-test resistance estimations as well as results obtained with some resistance calculation methods are compared with the measured full scale values. The turning circle results are compared with results published for other ships.
