Research Problems Related to Time-Varying Ice Actions

This paper addresses experimental results related to time-varying ice actions on vertical offshore structures. Data that has been obtained in both full-scale and small scale tests are reviewed. While analyzing full-scale data from the Cook Inlet structures, Peyton (1966) and Blenkarn (1970) found a velocity effect that was controlled by the displacements of the structure. Further research on ice actions due to ice crushing has been conducted during the past forty years. However, the physical reasons for this velocity effect have not yet been fully clarified. A review of the past research efforts is made in an attempt to clarify the reasons for this lack in our understanding.
