THE PRESSURE OP FLOATING ICE-FIELDS ON PILES

Joachim Schwarz

Abstract


In order to determine the maximum ice forces against structures, the compressive strength was investigated by laboratory tests on cubes of several ice species. The results contain the influence of temperature, velocity of deformation and direction of pressure on the cubic strength. In order to employ these laboratory results for the calculation of structures, a relationship between the strength m laboratory tests and m nature was derived by measuring the pressure of floating ice-fields on a pile of a bridge, which crosses the tidal estuary of the EIDER River. The investigation leads to an equation, which allows the calculation of ice pressure against piles.
