dc.description.abstract This thesis investigates the critical loading scenarios of multiple ice-strengthened ship structures when subjected to different load configurations. Evaluation of structural performance has been conducted using Non-linear Finite Element Analyses. Using a non-uniform pressure patch (NUPP), the capacity of ship structures was investigated and the safety margins against different capacity levels was determined. Results show that the point of yield and load for permanent deformation are highest for a structure built with IA Super ice class of the Finnish Swedish Ice Class Rules (FSICR). The values are observed to decrease for weaker ice classes. Although the present approach of FSICR is to design structures to yield once per winter, the safety factor against yield was about two for ice classes IA and IB, but slightly lower for IA Super. Comparison of different loading approaches, namely present design approach and non-uniform pressure patch, show that the FSICR approach yields much stiffer response. This justifies the use of less conservative NUPP for structural capacity evaluation, results of which show that the present FSICR design approach is extremely conservative. Alternatively, the current design pressure patch approach renders structures more safe than they actually are. Therefore, future investigations must clarify the pressure profile due to the ice loads. en
