The interaction between sea ice and sea water is a complicated fluid-solid coupling dynamic process during the operation of polar ships. Using the finite element numerical simulation software LS-DYNA to simulate the continuous ice breaking of icebreaker, the ice load numerical calculation method considering the ice water coupling is presented. The effect of ice water coupling on ice load is studied. Based on the ice pool test data and the calculated results of this paper, the accuracy and rationality of the algorithm are verified. On this basis, the multiple factors affecting the coupling between sea ice and sea water are further studied, including the thickness of sea ice and the collision velocity of ship and ice which are affected by the environment of different polar sea areas. By simulating the numerical results obtained from the collision ice breaking of the targeted ship, the influence of various factors on the coupling effect between sea ice and sea water is summarized, and the local strength of the hull head structure is checked and evaluated. Furthermore, the impact-type icebreaking ability of the hull is put forward, which has certain guiding significance for the development of ship ice collision numerical simulation.
