Abstract : Regional straining of the ice cap and differential settlement and tilt of footings has induced secondary loads into the structural frame of these facilities. These loads have been measured using hydraulic cylinders at sway bolt interaction points. The measurements indicate that large secondary loads exist within these facilities. It is recommended that structural components be analysed in detail to assess the influence of the measured loads on the integrity of each structure. (Author)
