AbstractA laboratory program has been carried out to measure the loads and seabed response due to an ice block scouring a representative seabed. The results are meant to provide experimental data for a numerical model that can be used for predicting scour depths and pressures in the Grand Banks region. Fourteen tests were performed with a variety of seabed types that are representative of the Grand Banks region. Blocks of freshwater ice were used to scour the seabed. The scouring loads and resulting trenches were measured. This report provides a description of the test arrangement and the experimental results.
