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.

MODELLING BRASH ICE GROWTH IN PORTS
Author : Kaj Riska , Rodolphe Blouquin , Edmond Coche , Sergey Shumovskiy , Dmitry Boreysha
Repeated breaking of the ice cover by ships entering and leaving ports induces a thermomechanical process of ice accumulation which produces brash ice. Brash ice is a mixture of smaller ice floes (mean diameter 50 cm) and water among the floes. The water content is described by porosity which is one of the main variables controlling the growth. This water freezes after each passage of ships and is again broken with the next ship passage. This process stimulates ice growth and thus the thickness of brash ice can reach several meters, even in milder winter conditions like those in the Baltic. In Arctic ports, if the ship passages are frequent, the
