AbstractA review and comparison of calculation methods of ice ridging forces is presented. An overview of a new ridging model that predicts the limiting rubble height and depth is included. This model uses a diffusion equation to describe the normal stress spread in the bulk rubble. Results of calculation methods are compared to those of laboratory tests and a typical field situation. Continuum models appear to predict reasonable ridging forces while the potential energy method greatly underestimates the forces.
