AbstractA model test study has been done to investigate the ridge-building processes in ice. Ridge geometries and the associated forces have been determined throughout the formation of pressure ridges. The results indicate that the forces appear to be proportional to the sail and keel heights of the ridge raised to a power greater than one. In its formation, the sail height and keel depth increased until they reached limiting values whereupon they grow horizontally.
