Great Lakes Small-Craft Harbor and Structure Design for Ice Conditions: An Engineering Manual
Small-craft harbors and marinas are subjected each winter to the powerful natural pressures of ice. Each year, ice causes millions of dollars in damages — bending iron railings, twisting docks and pulling pilings out of lake beds. This book describes the properties of ice, the principles of ice engineering and design methods for harbor structures.
