The aim is to introduce the student to winter navigation system in the Baltic Sea and basic principles for ship power requirements and hull ice-strengthening. After the course, students understand the definition of various ice conditions and their effects on the ship design, hull shape, power requirements, navigation in ice and safety of ships.
Power requirements need a comprehensive knowledge of the various methods to calculate the ship resistance in varying ice conditions such as level ice, ridged ice and ice channels. For the hull design, most important is to know how to calculate the ice induced loads on the hull.
The assessment will consist of weekly exercises, the group work and the exam.
- Lectures: 3 h/week, 54 hours in total
