FIRST LAB TESTS OF THE BLADE RUNNERS CONCEPT FOR REDUCING ICE INDUCED VIBRATION OF STRUCTURES
Author : R. Gagnon
To test the Blade Runners concept for reducing ice induced vibration and loads on structures a simple configuration consisting of a single stationary blade on a rigid flat metal crushing plate was chosen for ice crushing tests in NRC-OCRE?s Large Cold Room facility. Five wedge-shaped columnar-grained freshwater ice samples were crushed against a thick plate with a low-profile blade on it and the results were compared with those from another five crushing experiments using a plate without a blade. The two crushing plates were made of aluminum and had identical characteristics other than that one of them had a blade on it. The blade had an isosceles right
