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.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF ICE RIDGE KEEL STRENGTHS: THE INFLUENCE OF SPEED ON THE STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION BEHAVIOUR OF GOUGING RIDGE KEEL
Author : Eleanor Bailey , Jonathon Bruce , and Rocky Taylor ,
Offshore operations in Arctic and sub-Arctic environments often use pipelines as a means of transporting hydrocarbons back to shore-based facilities or as subsea tiebacks from excavated drilling centres to offshore platforms. In shallow waters drifting ice features, such as Sea ice processes ridges and icebergs, can scour or gouge the seabed posing a threat to subsea infrastructure. The main focus of the Development of Ice Ridge Keel Strength (DIRKS) project was to investigate the failure mechanisms associated with gouging ice ridge keels. This was investigated through a series of large-scale keel-gouge tests to investigate the strength characteristics of a first-year ice
