AbstractA model test series has been performed to look at the load distribution through newly-formed grounded ice rubble. In the tests, a section of a vertical-sided Arctic structure was built above a submerged berm. Both the structure and berm were instrumented independently of one another so that the load apportioning through the rubble to the berm and structure could be determined. The results have important implications in the design loads of Arctic structures built on submerged berms.
