Part one of this publication on design for ice forces emphasizes offshore and coastal structures. In this section , seasonal ice conditions typical of offshore and coastal zones are reviewed. Types of structures considered include prefabricated offshore structures, manmade offshore islands, port and coastal structures, offshore pipelines, and icebreaking ships. Part two concentrates on inland waterway structures. Topics discussed in this section include river and lake processes, measurement of ice forces on structures, bridge design, design of navigational structures, and design of submerged and floating structures. Methods of ice control are also discussed.
