Abstract The NICE-SHIP project aims to developing a new generation of computational methods, based on the integration of innovative semi-Lagrangian particle-based and finite element procedures for the analysis of the operation of a vessel in an iced sea, taking into account the different possible conditions of the ice. The computational analysis techniques to be developed in NICE-SHIP will allow ice-class vessel designers to accurately evaluate the loads acting on the structure of a ship navigating in iced-seas and, in particular, to determine the ice resistance of the ship in differente ice conditions. The different methods developed in NICE-SHIP will be useful for helping to improve the design of vessels and marine structures that should be operating efficiently and safely in iced seas.
