Subjectice codes; ice loads; impact on hydraulic structures
AbstractCanada and the Soviet Union share similar geographical positions and likewise similar problems with ice loads on structures. Soviet experience in dealing with ice problems has resulted in the publication of ice codes in 1959, 1967 and now most recently in 1976. There are now efforts in Canada to revise and update existing ice codes here. It was felt that the translation of this most recent Soviet Code would be a useful contribution to Canadian engineers and code writers. Only the part on ice of a chapter in SNiP II - 57-75, which includes, as well, wave and vessel effects on hydraulic structures, has been translated and printed in this publication. It should be pointed out, that the literature on which the Soviet Code is based is not readily available for evaluation. Therefore it is not possible to judge how applicable the recommendations are to Canadian conditions. This document should only be considered as an additional source of experience either in formulating guidelines for Canada or in assessing ice forces for particular locations in Canada.
