Abstract:
The mechanism by which ice floes occurring in rivers, lakes, and oceans can damage concrete structures in the water is hypothesized. Various test methods to evaluate the effects of ice abrasion and impact on concrete are reviewed, and selected results using these methods are presented. Several field studies of the effects of ice abrasion on concrete structures are identified.
