The session papers are focused on recent studies of icebreaking ships design, ship performance modeling and analysis of operational conditions of shipping and offshore structures incorporating current metocean and ice data. Participants will learn the results of some latest studies of the design of ice going ships, recent lessons learned from challenging Arctic voyages, as well as development of new approaches in ice modeling. The ice cover dynamic behavior at shallow waters and shipping analysis based on the current state of available ice and weather information will also be discussed. Who Should Attend? Naval architects and ocean engineers dealing with icebreaking ships and offshore structure design, arctic transportation systems designers, Polar shipping operators and anyone fascinated by ships and offshore structures in ice.
