WP3 - Fixed Structures in Ice

Goals:

To develop the analytical and numerical models needed by the industry to predict the action from ice (first- and multi-year, level ice and ridges) on fixed single and multi leg structures, and to further to develop innovative vibration mitigation measures.

Ice action

Background:

The following gaps need to be addressed in order to reach the above goals: 1) There is presently no clear understanding of how to address ice-structure interaction in many practically relevant situations. To predict ice loads with a desired accuracy, models have to be developed that account for the effects of ice-structure interaction for the predicted failure mechanisms in ice; 2) Represent multi-year ridges and ice in model-scale with respect to size, shape and mechanical properties; 3) There is presently no clear understanding of how to address ice failure against a vibrating structure; in particular, the synchronization of ice failure is not clear.
