INTERACTION OF PACK ICE WITH STRUCTURES AND ASSOCIATED ICE MECHANICS

Structures from which operations are carried out in Arctic and sub-Arctic waters include stationary structurs fixed to the ocean floor, conventional surface shipping vessels, and submarines. In this section we review what is known about the problems involved in operating such structures in a pack ice environment and offer suggestions for design and operation. These aspects are discussed in the light of the work performed by AIDJEX on ice mechanics: ice sheet failure modes and fracture, ridging, ice forces on structures, and pressure fields and motions in the ice sheet. ...
