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.

ICE RIDGE CHARACTERISTICS AND ENGINEERING CONCERNS REGARDING ICE RIDGES
Author : Knut V. H?yland
Ice ridges are vital ice features and have important implications for engineering activities in icy waters. The forces at play when an ice ridge hits a ship, a moored or fixed structure often give the design quasi-static environmental action, and a realistic estimation of these forces is important to make safe and sound solutions. Before any design can be decided, the ice ridges in an area need to be characterized in a sufficiently accurate manner, and the first important distinction is that between first-year- and old ridges. Old ridges are believed to be completely consolidated and considerably stronger so they are assumed to give higher forces. The ridge
