The structure of ice and the initial formation of ice cover are described. The occurrence and classification of ice in the Baltic are reviewed. The mechanical properties of ice, from the viewpoint of a naval architect, are examined from both theoretical and experimental standpoints. The problems of ice-going ships are studied and modeling techniques for ice-breaking and ice cover are discussed.
