Record #111765:

Wave-induced iceberg motion / J.H. Lever, K. Klein, D. Mitchell, Deborah Diemand.

Title: Wave-induced iceberg motion / J.H. Lever, K. Klein, D. Mitchell, Deborah Diemand.
Author(s): Lever, J. H.
Klein, K.
Mitchell, D.
Diemand, Deborah.
Date: 1991.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1991.), Vol. 20(1) (1991)
Abstract: Presents results of three-year field study in Labrador Sea and Grand Banks to obtain measurements of wave-induced iceberg motion as function of iceberg size and sea state from which validity of physical and numerical models may be assessed. Self-contained motion-monitoring packages were deployed; data obtained appear to be only available for motion of full-scale icebergs in six degrees of freedom. Confirms that wave tank-based velocities calculated for regularly shaped models do reflect range of velocities observed for randomly shaped full-scale icebergs. Because of influence of shape, surge and heave, significant velocities are treated as random quantities for given iceberg size and sea state. Suggests that gamma probability densities, fitted to wave tank-based results, are suitable for this purpose.
