Abstract:

The Ice Engineering Facility IEF is a unique hydraulic research facility located at the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory CRREL in Hanover, New Hampshire part of the Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC. IEF houses the coldrooms for sophisticated modeling of hydraulic processes in cold regions. The design and opening philosophy of the facility is to provide system flexibility for maximum capability in solving cold regions engineering problems. including ice jams. ice management at locks and dams. vertical and horizontal ice forces on riverine and marine structures. performance of vessels in riverine and sea ice. ice impact on shorelines and the environment. ice effects on sediment movement. and ice effects on fish. Some features and recent research examples are described below.
