Abstract: This paper reports the design of a laboratory flume and experiments on the formation of different types of freeze-up ice in channels. The flume was constructed in the Hamburgische Schiffbau-Versuchsanstalt (HSVA) Environmental Basin. It was a recirculating racetrack type flume with a test section of 22 m long, 60 cm wide and 1m deep. Test runs with different flow depth, and air temperature were conducted. Flow velocity, or discharge, was varied over a range for each test run, such that different types of ice formations could be developed.
