17th International Offshore and Polar Engineering Conference, 1-6 July 2007, Lisbon, Portugal
New hull forms and novel operational concepts are being developed to meet the challenges facing the shipping industries due to increasing demand for ice-strengthening vessels. This in turns leads to increased demand for physical model tests in ice to assist in the design process to improve their ice-going capability and performance. The Korean government has recognized the immediate need for providing research and development support to the Korean shipyards by funding the first model ice basin in MOERI. This paper presents the conceptual design of the new ice modeling facility to be built at Daejeon in South Korea by 2010.
