Investigations are made on the ice forces exerting on an isolated vertical pile were studied. Three kinds of experiments were carried out to obtain formulas for the ice forces on the pile. It has been found that the ice forces are proportional to the thickness of the ice and the square root of maximum width of a pile for each of three cases with piles of different crossectional shapes, circular, rectangular and wedged. Based on these experiments formulas on the ice forces on a pile is proposed.
