2.6 Transit ship speed simulation code
2.6.1 Summary of the development for transit ship speed code
Transit ship spppd code： NEWSIM2
The ship velocity simulation code named NEWSIM has been developed by the Helsinki University of Technology (Lensu et al., 1996) in INSROP phase I in order to calculate ship transit velocity in ice infested waters. However, NEWSIM dealt with too simple ice condition, and NEWSIM2 is newly developed (Riska et al., 1998) for this simulation to incorporate parameters prepared by WP2. NEWSIM2 is the code using FORTRAN, and it enables to calculate ship speed in five different types of ice conditions;
Table 2.6.1 shows input parameters of NEWSIM 2.
