The Influence of the Floating Ice on Ship Passage on the River Danube and the Struggle with Ice During the Winter

A state with river waterways must, to some extent during the winter, think about ice and the impact on navigation on the river. Since the Danube is an international waterway and part of corridor VII, ice in winter requires special attention. This paper generally contains everything one needs to know about ice on the Danube (what is ice, how it occurs, what types there are, when it happens, how long it lasts and terms of navigation during ice stagnation and ice floating). Furthermore it is explained how to break the ice on the river Danube, types of icebreakers and ice-blasting method. The paper is based on the ice on the Danube, and it explains how to fight against the ice. There is a conclusion at the end of the paper on how to fight back in order to prevent tragic events and reduce property damage.
