AbstractThis paper presents a description of an instrumented projectile which can be used to measure the impact properties of freshwater ice. The projectile is instrumented with 5 pressure cells, an accelerometer, a load cell and 2 displacement gauges. When dropped onto the surface of freshwater ice, it provides information on the local crushing pressures, pressure distributions, crushing energy and damage processes in the ice. Some preliminary test results are presented.
