Improving ship’s ice-going performance ─ through a better understanding of mechanics of marine structures

​Welcome to Zhiyuan Li's promotion lecture to Associate Professor
More and more ships are entering ice-infested waters without ice-breaker escort. This trend will continue because of global warming. Improving ice-going performance for existent and future commercial ships becomes pertinent. This lecture provides an overview of structural challenges faced by ice-going ships. Improvements regarding the design and operation of ice-going vessels are presented and discussed in the context of sustainable shipping.
