Emphasis is on marine structures in the ocean environment but consideration is given to forces resulting from both salt-water ice and fresh-water ice, and ice fields and bergs are taken into account. The types of marine structures on which ice can act are to be understood to include fixed gravity type structures such as breakwaters or caissons, flexible open type structures supported on piles, and floating structures such as ships and buoys. Ice thickness prediction, physical and mechanical properties, forces on structures, and operational considerations are discussed.
