We present preliminary results of numerical modeling of the combined effects of ICM stripping and galaxy collisions on galaxies in clusters. We use the Hydra adaptive mesh, P3M + SPH code of Couchman et al. (1995). Generally, the formation of extended tidal and splash structures in galaxy interactions will facilitate ram pressure stripping. ICM compression of massive clouds stripped from tails and plumes may produce significant populations of free-floating star clusters or dwarf galaxies.
