SIPW03 - Ice-structure interaction

To design columns, foundations or mooring systems for offshore structures in areas exposed to ice, accurate estimates of global ice loads on the structure are required. In this presentation a comparison is made between the current practice of design of structures in ice and design of structures in waves and how loading is determined. The use of numerical models could increase the accuracy of ice load and structural response predictions, leading to reduced costs and risk of failure. Current use, gaps and ongoing development of numerical models for ice load prediction on structures are discussed.
