AbstractIce load measuring sensors were installed on the Yamachiche Bend lightpier in the St. Lawrence River downstream from Montreal. Panels consisting of steel plates supported on load cells are used to measure static loads while accelerometers are used to monitor dynamic loads. Operation of the system over the winters of 1983-84 to 1985-86 is described and some preliminary estimates of the total ice forces on the pier are presented.
