CONSIDERATIONS REGARDING ICE ACCRETION ON BOARD SHIPS AND THE INFLUENCE ON INTACT STABILITY

  • Cristian Andrei Navigation

Abstract

Although the aspects of adverse weather conditions encountered during the voyage are continuously studied, the phenomenon of ice accretion on board vessel remain a very important topic of research for those who work in maritime industry. Ice accretion on board vessel, apart from the fact that reduce the ship’s maneuverability and make difficult the navigation, has also a high negative influence on intact stability. The importance of this aspect is revealed by the activity of International Maritime Organization which continuously amend the regulations with new recommendations in this respect. The main goal of the present paper is to highlight the main aspects of ice accretion phenomenon and to illustrate the impact on ship’s intact stability based on a simulation carried out for a ship in a real loading condition. The simulation carried out revealed very important aspects in respect of ship’s stability parameters affected by ice accretion.
