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 Station for Ramming Test on OATRC 2013
Author : Sinitsyn, Anatoly, Taisiya Sinitsyna, and Hayo Hendrikse
In August 2013 the Oden Arctic Technology Research Cruise (OATRC2013) was undertaken in the Fram Strait, North-East Greenland. A ramming test by the icebreaker was one of the research tasks. The test was performed on an ice flow which included a large ice ridge, and a region of level ice spreading behind the ice ridge for several hundred meters. An ice station was established for data collection on the physical and mechanical properties of the ice ridge and level ice. Ice thickness, crystal structure, salinity, temperature, density, and uniaxial compressive strength were obtained for the level ice, and the morphology of the ice ridge was studied. Moreover, the accuracy of a prototype electromagnetic antenna EM-34 ICE was examined through the measurement of ice thickness on the ice station.
