Ice forces can be estimated from measurements of the pressures which occur in the ice near obstructions. The special problems associated with making this particular kind of pressure measurement are discussed, as well as the ways in which these problems have been solved by development of a new ice pressure sensor with certain favorable characteristics. The present paper concludes that the most advantageous sensor in order to minimize ice over loading and to permit accurate high-pressure measurements, has a stiffness comparable to that of the ice.
