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.

A LABORATORY STUDY OF WAVE-ICE INTERACTIONS IN THE MARGINAL ICE ZONE USING POLYDIMETHYLSILOXANE (PDMS) AS A VISCOELASTIC MODEL
Author : Firdaus Prabowo , Dharma Sree , Adrian Law Wing-Keung , and Hayley H. Shen ,
Global warming has significantly changed the environment of Earth?s coldest regions. While in the Antarctic, Sea ice processes is expanding its areal coverage, in the Arctic a dramatic decrease is observed. Consequently, the Arctic region is now more accessible for shipping and offshore constructions than before, hence the emerging needs to understand the sea-ice and wave interactions. Previous studies have modeled the floating ice field as a viscoelastic material. However, experimental validation of the theoretical model is still lacking. In this study, we propose using polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) as the scalable viscoelastic material for laboratory
