AbstractA Joint Industry Project has been carried out to develop a "Catalogue of Local Ice Pressures". The focus of the project was to determine average local ice pressures on various sizes and shapes of design areas, and to present the data in a form to facilitate probabilistic estimation of local ice pressures. The data are organized in a database to assist extraction of local ice pressures as a function of operational factors and ice conditions. The database includes four digital data sets on ship trials (1994 Louis S. St. Laurent, 1991 and 1996 Oden, and 2001 Terry Fox), two offshore structures (1985-86 Molikpaq caisson and 1990 JZ-20-2-1 jacket structure) and one field test (1995 Grappling Island). An example of the method used to process data from bow measurements during the 1994 Polar transit of the Louis St. St. Laurent is presented.
