Ships travelling through pack ice are exposed to structural damage in the hull due to collisions with ice-floe. GEM simulation environment, a Memorial University project, is an ice-ship interaction software that allows the study of the impact forces applied on a ship, when it maneuvers through pack ice [1]. At a rate much faster than the real-time, GEM is capable of simulating ship navigation through complex pack ice formations. Such a tool is beneficial in predicting hazardous collisions that affect structural integrity and operational performance of ships and floating offshore structures.
