Abstract : This report is a comprehensive review of structural ice control methods in use worldwide today. The structures are grouped according to the purpose of the ice control. Categories are sheet ice retention, breakup ice control and ice diversion. The focus is on the recent performance of the structures. Innovative solutions that could be applied to river confluence ice problems also receive special attention. The report reviews the state of the art in structural ice control, addressing the ranges as well as the limits of application of methods in use today. (MM)
