Hi. I do not know what boundary supports should I use on icebreaker hull model. All I know is I have to apply an ice pressure on the tip of the bottom of the bow. However, I still need the supports to constraint the model in order for the non linear analysis to work properly.
So, what type of boundary supports or conditions should I use to constraint the hull model?
