Abstract: Ice forces on a bridge pier in the Ottauquechee River, in Quechee, Vermont, were measured by installing four panels- each capable of measuring forces in the normal and tangential direction- on both sides of a vertical V -shaped pier nose. The measured forces are presented for a short period during an ice run. After the ice run, the thickness and sizes of the ice floes were measured and the compressive strength of the ice was determined in the laboratory from the ice samples collected along the river banks. The water level measurements made at several locations along the river are also presented for the period of the ice run.
