Bibliographic description: Dobrodeev A.A., Sazonov K.E., Sapershteyn I.A. Reverse motion of ships in ice: some research results. Arctic: ecology and economy, 2019, no. 4(36), pp. 99-106. DOI: 10.25283/2223-4594-2019-4-99-106. (In Russian).


Some results of studies performed in the ice tank of the Krylov State Research Center are presented, as well as theoretical estimates related to the study of the ships stern motion in level ice are given. The analysis of the interaction of the vessel stern end with level ice cover, is carried out, as well as the effect of the rotational speed of the propellers during model tests in the ice tank on the ice resistance of the vessel is assessed. The results allow evaluating the effectiveness of marine transport systems and can be used to develop requirements in the field of ice performance for designed icebreakers and heavy-tonnage ice vessels.
