When structures having inclined surfaces, such as cone-type and inclined-pile structures, are constructed in coastal and offshore cold regions, sea ice forces must be considered in their design. In order to estimate these forces, the relationships of the coefficients of static and kinetic friction between sea ice and construction materials must be evaluated. The authors have been conducting, for four years, experiments on the coefficients of friction between sea ice and various commonly used… CONTINUE READING
