AbstractThis review examines the role of grounded rubble fields in transferring floating ice loads to offshore structures. Field and laboratory studies provide information concerning rubble fields geometry, composition, and some stress measurements. Methods of estimating grounding resistance and other analyses that deal with stability of rubble fields are discussed.
