This article is the second part of the article series “Design and Construction of Ice Class Ships – Part 1”.
Learn about the design and construction aspects of ships capable to ply in ice. Know more about the classification guidelines and norms that dictate the construction design of these vessels.
We are familiar with the form of ship propeller, but have we ever contemplated upon their shape, appearance and typical geometry? Let’s find out inside the article.
Learn about the different types of factors that are taken into consideration while designing ice class vessels.
It is worthwhile to mention that in most of the places describing the preliminary design of ship’s hull structures, utmost priority is given to the midship section, thanks to the global stresses such as maximum hull girder bending and buckling loads taken into account.
Manoeuvrability is defined as the inherent ability of a vessel to change its course/path. Understanding the factor of manoeuvrability of a vessel is extremely important to both ship designer or seafarer. Read more about different types Of manoeuvres of a vessel inside the article.
Learn more about a ship’s superstructure by understanding the different type of loads acting on it and important requirements for a good design.
Let’s take a look at different ice loads that act on ships, along with design peculiarities of ice-class vessels and their features, capabilities and classification.
Learn how ship model testing is carried out and understand the purpose, construction process and types of testing facilities commonly used.
