CollaborativeR&D CollaborativeR&D increases research and development (R&D) partnerships and collaboration between academia and industry in areas relevant to the Newfoundland and Labrador economy.Compressive Ice Failure Mechanics, $300,000 from RDC Dr. Ian Jordaan, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Memorial University and Centre for Arctic Research and Development, C-CORE One of the areas that is important in further exploration of Arctic and sub-Arctic regions is the safe, yet economic, design of vertical-walled offshore structures and ships for the ice conditions present in these regions. Understanding ice compressive failure behaviour and the associated mechanics are critical in modeling ice loads and risk. While the mechanics of ice crushing are complex, significant progress has been made in understanding the processes involved and simplifying key aspects of failure behavior. This project seeks to expand this research to investigate fundamental issues, such as the behaviour of high pressure zones and processes that limit ice failure pressures, which are of great importance for design. Funding from RDC leverages $300,000 from Statoil and $240,000 from C-CORE.
