IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS OF THE ENERGY ABSORPTION CAPACITY OF ICE DURING CRUSHING: IS THE SPECIFIC ENERGY SCALE INDEPENDENT?
Author : Ekaterina Kim & Knut V. H?yland
Knowledge of scale transition is important because tests are often conducted on miniature ice specimens. The specific energy absorption of laboratory-grown freshwater ice during crushing at small scale is compared with that of lake ice and iceberg ice during crushing at medium scale. The main objective of this study is to test whether the specific energy (energy per unit mass of crushed ice) necessary to turn solid ice into crushed (pulverized) material can be considered as a size- and scale-independent characteristic. The study is limited to the specific energy absorption during the local ice crushing process (fragmentation). The results indicate that the specific
