Ice Breaker Propulsion Pod: Modeling Ice Contact with Propellers

A propulsion pod on an ice breaker can use its propellers to crush ice. This creates large forces in the system. Investigate these forces with standardized load test cases.

Build Custom Libraries

Create a custom library to model a propulsion pod and its interaction with ice.

Instantly Plot Simulation Results

Compare forces in the pod system when different areas on the propeller blade come into contact with ice.
