AbstractThe National Research Council of Canada in Ottawa has developed an �Ice Load Catalogue�. This catalogue contains over 300 Events of ice loading on offshore and coastal structures. The catalogue contains information on the time-based behavior of the load as well as details of the ice conditions during each loading event. There is a complete range of structures that are included in the Catalogue including bridge piers, light piers, wharves, dams, offshore structures and natural islands. This paper presents an overview of the Catalogue. Each structure-type is described along with the instrumentation used to measure loads. A summary of available information is provided along with the load levels observed on the different types of structures.
