Winterlude 1986 - Dows Lake ice loading test / Nirmal K. Sinha.

Title: Winterlude 1986 - Dows Lake ice loading test / Nirmal K. Sinha.
Author(s): Sinha, Nirmal K.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: New York: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
In: Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering - 1992. Presented ... Calgary, Alberta, Canada, June 7-12, 1992. Vol. 4 - Arctic/polar technology. (1992.),
Abstract: Annual winter festivities in Ottawa on ice of Dows Lake, originally constructed as reservoir for Rideau Canal, involve considerable load being carried by ice, which, in 1985, caused deflection of ice and flooding, leading to cancellation of forthcoming concert. After this, it was decided to carry out systematic series of tests to evaluate load-carrying capacity of this lake ice. Results and recommendations for future occasions are presented.
