AbstractThe maximum force which an ice cover can exert on a structure and the relative importance of the various factors which influence it cannot yet be established with the degree of confidence desired in engineering practice. One factor assumed to influence the load developed on a structure is the ratio of the structure width to ice thickness. Closely allied to this is the degree of completeness of contact between the ice and the structure. This article, translated from the Russian, develops an analytical framework within which field or laboratory observations on these factors can be compared.
