AbstractSome of the fundamental factors in the behaviour of flexible structures subject to various types of ice loading are introduced. Terminology is presented and various aspects of the basic equations of motion of a compliant structure are discussed. Measurement of dynamic response of structures, analysis using transformation between the time domain and frequency domain, and interpretation of results are treated. Recommendations are made on measurement methods. The results of laboratory tests will be used to illustrate these methods.
