Design of Submerged and Floating Structures

by Peter G. Noble, Arctec Canada Ltd, Calgary, Alberta, Can,

Abstract: The objective of this paper is to present an overview of the state-of-the-art of ice engineering as applied to submerged and floating structures. Five specific design studies are reviewed, dealing with aspects of the problem including a water intake pipeline of Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories (N. W. T. ), Canada, an electrical cable crossing in the Great Lakes, a floating ice boom, a floating plant barge for Canadian Arctic operations, and a ship design for a temperate ice regime.
