Floaters in the Arctic region constantly interact with level ice. Thus, hydrodynamic analysis of the isolated floater without accounting for the effect of the level ice is incomplete. This study aims to identify the most important parameters affecting the multi-body hydrodynamic behavior of level ice and a single floater. A standard semi-submersible represents the floater and a range of geometric variations of the level ice strives to simulate the varying nature of the ice environment encountered by the floaters in the Arctic. The findings from this study points towards the major focus areas for subsequent detailed studies. Additionally, this study makes some initial recommendations on the need and means of accounting for level ice in the hydrodynamic analysis of floaters in the Arctic.
