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.

AN EFFECTIVE NUMERICAL METHOD FOR GENERATION OF BROKEN ICE FIELDS, CONSISTING OF A LARGE NUMBER OF POLYGON-SHAPED DISTINCT FLOES
Author : Renat Yulmetov , Sveinung L?set Raed Lubbad
Highly concentrated and confined broken ice can be a serious threat for an offshore floater. To predict impacts from broken ice on a floater, the ice must be modelled as discontinuous, consisting of many independent rigid bodies representing ice floes. A single ice floe can be characterized by thickness, mean caliper diameter, area, roundness, etc. For broken ice, it is important to know the overall concentration and distributions of those characteristics over an area of interest. During the past decades, floe size distribution was surveyed using image analysis for different regions and scales. It has been shown that the mean caliper diameter may be
