In this paper, ice model tests with different lengths of parallel middle-body were conducted to estimate accurate resistance performance of ice-breaking merchant vessels. Totally, three model ships were manufactured: The standard vessel is 90,000 DWT tanker to transport oil in the ARC7 condition, and two vessels have only different lengths of parallel middle-ship compared to the standard vessel. Ice breaking, ice friction, ice buoyancy, and open-water resistances were classified and measured in experiments, and each resistance component according to change of ship’s length is analyzed. In addition, the resistance formula of ice-breaking tanker is developed by a regression analysis.
