Small-Scale Hydro Power in Cold Climates
Small-scale hydro power is mostly developed under more pressing economical conditions than large hydro. It is therefore of great importance that the operation and maintenance costs are...

Frazil Ice Control Using Electromechanical Cibrators and Ice-Resistant Coatings
Two methods, using electromechanical vibrators and ice-resistant coatings, were studied in a small-scale test conducted at the U. S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory...

Arctic Slope Protection: Considerations for Ice

Fracture Control for Arctic Vessels and Structures
Materials used for construction of Arctic structures and vessels are exposed to low ambient temperatures, high local ice loads and intermediate to high loading rates. All these factors...

Utilization of Ground Penetrating Radar to Conduct Sediment Surveys of Frozen Reservoirs
The ground penetrating radar (GPR) system consisted of a control unit, antenna, recorder, a power supply on a sled towed by a snowmobile. A 120 Mhz antenna was utilized and gave excellent...

Sea-Ice Influence on Arctic Coastal Retreat

Composite Resistance to Flow With an Ice Cover
Recent data collected on several rivers in Michigan suggest, with only an ice cover present, that Manning's roughness ratio is constant at n//R equals 0. 65. If other ice...

Paleoflood Studies in Colorado
Paleoflood hydrology is the study of botanic, sedimentologic and geomorphic flood evidence remaining in a valley. Paleoflood studies in the Colorado foothills and mountains have been used...

Mechanical Properties of Model Ice Rubble
Experiments were conducted to measure the mechanical properties of bulk ice rubble. Tests were performed under isothermal and plane strain conditions. Fresh water ice blocks were used...

A Mathematical Model for River Ice
Several computer models for simulating river ice conditions have been developed (Petryk, 1986). All of these models simulate frazil ice production, and the progression, erosion and melting...

Journal of Cold Regions Engineering
The Journal of Cold Regions Engineering publishes practice- and research-oriented articles from any area of civil engineering that is substantially related to cold regions. Topics include ice engineering,...

Simulation of River Ice Processes on Alaska's Susitna River
A numerical river ice model is applied to an 85-mile reach of Alaska's Susitna River immediately downstream of the proposed Susitna Hydroelectric Project. The model is designed...

Wind Loads on Electrical Transmission Structures
Guidelines for structural loads on electrical transmission structures were prepared by the American Society of Civil Engineers' Committee on Electrical Transmission Structures....

Determination of Climatic Design Loads: Session Discussion

Adfreeze Strength of Ice to Steel Pipe Piles as a Function of Temperature
A study was initiated to determine the adfreeze bond strength between steel pipe piles and freshwater ice as a function of temperature. Tests were conducted at an average strain rate of...
