Good Afternoon,

I am relatively new to Soldiworks and am conducting a study into the potential of using Solidworks to model a ship crashing through ice. I am essentially looking for some experienced users of the software to advise me if this would be possible using the simulation aspects? Ideally I need to model it dynamically; but statically would also be useful.

Any direction or help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

What exactly are you trying to determine? Propulsive force for the boat? Loads on the hull? Trajectories of the broken ice bits?

Chances are bit slim for any of the above. But maybe not. Depends on how you are looking at the problem.
