Because of the terrain changes, the ice of foundation under the building and floating ice on the Yellow River often meet the stress. Therefore, research on the ice properties has important significance to ice dynamic processes of ice glaciers, rivers, lakes, sea ice and icebreaker. In this paper, the properties of artificial cylindrical ice is analyzed and researched. Prepared process of artificial cylindrical ice and the determination using pressure testing machine on artificial cylindrical ice are given, mainly including the production of frozen mold, the production and processing of ice samples and researching on the properties of the cylindrical ice. When frozen temperature is -10,-20,-30，-40°C, constant loading speed 1，3，5，7，10 mm/min is loaded with pressure testing machine on icicle, it can be concluded the influence of frozen temperature and loading speed on icicle.
