Dynamic analysis of ice floe underturning stability / W.R. McGilvary, Barry A. Coutermarsh.

Title: Dynamic analysis of ice floe underturning stability / W.R. McGilvary, Barry A. Coutermarsh.
Author(s): McGilvary, W. R.
Coutermarsh, Barry A.
Date: [1993]
Publisher: Edmonton, Alberta: University of Alberta, Department of Civil Engineering
In: IAHR 92; 11th International Symposium on Ice, Banff, Alberta, Canada, June 15-19, 1992. Proceedings. ([1993]), Vol.1.
Abstract: In order to estimate ice-floe capture efficiency of river ice, underturning stability criterion is required for each characteristic floe geometry. Here, measured hydrodynamic pressure distribution on bottom of single model ice floe is used to estimate dynamic stability at three thickness-to-depth ratios. Energy-based analysis details conditions required for instability, metastability, and stability. Results compare favourably with existing stability criteria. At all three ratios, effect of block rotational inertia has effect of reducing Froude number by 5 to 10% over completely static stability criterion.
