Description: Special Report
Abstract: This working group 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 models for ice, ice forces on compliant structures and conical-shaped structures, ice rubble, spray ice and ice loads on ice breaking 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 it should provide an excellent textbook for those students interested in ice mechanics. A more detailed abstract appears at the beginning of each individual paper.
