AbstractA model test series has been performed to investigate the dynamic ice loads on a bridge pier of the Great Belt Link, Denmark. Two models were constructed at a geometric scale factor of 30. Each model consisted of a bridge pier with two separate bridge shafts. The ice loads were measured on the shafts as a function of interaction rate and ice attack direction for three different values of foundation stiffness: rigid in both horizontal directions, rigid in one horizontal direction but flexible in the other, and flexible in both horizontal directions. The experimental techniques and results of the test series are discussed and presented in tabular form.
