HYDRAULIC MODELING OF ICE-COVERED WATERS
Hydraulic modeling can play an important role in solving problems associated with ice-covered waters if it is shown to scale prototype conditions accurately. With this in mind, the purpose of this paper is three-fold. The first is to present unified sets of scaling laws for both distorted and undistorted hydraulic models of ice-covered waters. Secondly, a unique modeling material, which exhibits similitude with prototype ice properties, and its use in hydraulic models of portions of the St. Lawrence Seaway are described. Finally, the role that hydraulic modeling can play in solving ice-related problem is examined.
