Abstract:

This report on ice forces on structures includes 13 individual papers covering topics of local ice pressures, large-scale ice pressures, large-scale ice loads and failure modes, damage modes for ice, ice forces on compliant structures and conical-shaped structures, ice rubble, spray ice and ice loads on icebreaking vessels. Researchers and design engineers should find the report useful and informative in all of these areas. The papers were written with senior undergraduate and graduate students in mind so they should provide an excellent textbook for those students interested in ice mechanics.
