The Simulator for Arctic Marine Structures (SAMS) has emerged on the foundation of a number of scientific models developed at SAMCoT – Centre for Research-based Innovation - Sustainable Arctic Marine and Coastal Technology hosted by NTNU – as a versatile numerical tool for the analysis of sea ice actions and action effects on Arctic offshore structures. The current capabilities of SAMS allow engineers to analyse icefloe impacts and ice loads on arbitrary marine structures in various environmental conditions; simulations may involve both fixed and floating structures, non-rigid multi floe interactions, ice breaking and ice rubbling, wind, current and propeller-flow effects on both structures and ice. All these capabilities can be combined to model also complex marine operations in the Arctic and subarctic regions.

As SAMS can be applied in both full- and model scales, a number of available experimental case studies from the field and ice tanks can be reanalysed with the new simulator to ensure the high fidelity of the simulations and to establish a validation basis. This paper presents several of such case studies and discusses further validation possibilities.
