This paper reports on experimental investigations of self propulsion performance with synthetic (model) ice and refrigerated ice, which were conducted in a typical towing tank and ice tank, respectively. The main purpose of this research was to find the correlation between the selfpropulsion performance with synthetic ice in a typical towing tank and that with refrigerated ice in an ice tank. The different stresses between the synthetic ice and refrigerated ice influenced the self propulsion performance due to different ice and propeller interactions. A further study on the ice property variation for a self propulsion performance comparison is to be conducted in the near future.
