CARD is a medium- to long-term research & development initiative in collaboration with industry, dedicated to responsible, cost-effective hydrocarbon development in Arctic regions.

Mike Manuel, M. Eng.

Ice Research Engineer.

Mike Manuel joined CARD in September 2014 as an Ice Research Engineer. He holds an M.Eng. (2014), and B.Eng. (2012) in Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering from Memorial University. During graduate studies, Mike administered a successful large scale structure-ice loading experiment program. His thesis research focused on the plastic response of structures to ice loading, using physical results to validate numerical models. Developed through professional and academic experience, Mike has a strong background in ship structure design and analysis, ice mechanics, and finite element analysis. Since joining the CARD team, Mike’s work has been focused on both numerical, analytical and probabilistic approaches of evaluating ice loading on structures.
