This report describes the development of semi-empirical models for propeller/ice interaction loads. These models are based on model experimental results and are calibrated with available full scale data. Propeller/ice interaction models have been developed for non-contact loads, for non-contact blade pressure distributions, and for contact loads. This report documents the models, issues, and full scale comparisons as completed to date, and outlines the work to completion.
