How to model a marine propeller rotating and hitting an object

I am looking to design a marine propeller and simulate the propeller rotating. While the propeller is rotating, I would like to see the affects when an object such as ice hits the tip or any part of the propeller blade.

Hi Gary:
Thats a simple impact analysis, check at

Blade tip tangencial speed can be computed from RPM and radius, and used as an impact linear speed.
