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.

STUDY OF LOCAL ICE PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION ON A CYLINDRICAL OFFSHORE STRUCTURE BY USING TACTILE SENSORS
Author : Jonas Bechthold , Gesa Ziemer , Karl-Ulrich Evers , Peter Jochmann , Norbert Hoffmann
Climate change impacts on the cryosphere and the reduction of oil and gas reserves are associated with an increase of activities to find new hydrocarbon resources in ice-covered regions. Offshore structures for this purpose have to be designed to withstand the occurrent ice loads. Despite many existing design approaches for global ice pressure on such offshore structures there is rather little information available about local ice pressure and its distribution. For that reason model tests with a physical model of the Norstr?msgrund lighthouse are conducted in the large ice tank of the Hamburg Ship Model Basin (HSVA) within the Hydralab IV ? HyReS
