Activities

  • Further development of ice mechanics models and model impact on industrial operations.
  • Numerical modelling of ice structure interaction, level ice, ice ridges/icebergs, test and consolidation of methods and technology
  • Numerical modelling of first year ridge formation for estimation of geometric and physical properties of FY-ridges. Numerical modeling of temperature distribution and consolidation of FY ridges
  • Ice-structure interaction issues towards various industries, oil and gas (with potential GBS/ Spar and Barge structures), marine operations, vessel/ship etc., (use information and statistics from WP1 to define the probability/risks for incidents, frequency and define dimensioning cases).
  • Models for Ice management, planning and operational, concepts for ice handling/removal etc. (use information and statistics from WP1 to define the probability/risks for incidents, frequency and define dimensioning cases).
  • Utilization of regional sea ice models to derive Polar Code compliant risk information for the Barents Sea area. Harbor operations and harbor structures (ice), north passage (east – west corridor).
