Paper Title:
Experimental Study of Sea Ice Forces on a Structure and its Stability
  Abstract

A structure was designed to reduce the large forces exerted by level ice on offshore structures in shallow icy waters, by breaking the large ice floes into small pieces from flexing-induced failure. A series of model tests was conducted to simulate ice loads on the structure. A concrete model of it was adopted to verify the stability of the structure under the action of ice floes, which had five different thicknesses. The results show that ice forces on the structure are low and that the stability of the structure under different sea bed is good.
