Daniela Myland, PhD

HSVA proudly congratulates its employee Daniela Myland for achieving her PhD degree!

Congratulations to Daniela Myland, Deputy Head of Arctic Technology Department, for achieving her PhD degree at NTNU with her thesis on “Experimental and Theoretical Investigations on the Ship Resistance in Level Ice”. The thesis focused on the resistance of icebreaking ships advancing continuously in level ice, whereby different aspects of the ice resistance were analysed on the basis of ice model tests. Newly developed methods and techniques were used in the course of the model tests and a semi-empirical resistance prediction method was improved with the gained insight. The work allows an enhanced analysis of the ice breaking process in model and full scale and can be seen as a basis for a refined ice resistance prediction in the future.
