The dynamic ice forces on a moored icebreaking tanker induced by drifting level ice were simulated with a two dimensional numerical model. Based on a heading controller which aimed to keep the hull head towards the drifting ice, ice resistance on ship was mainly estimated when taking the relative motion between the hull and ice into account. The mooring force and responses of the moored vessel were also looked into through parameter sensitivity studies with different ice thicknesses and ice drift speeds.
