AbstractCentrifuge modeling provides an efficient and cost-effective complement to conventional ice tank modeling to simulate the deformation of level ice and rubble. This paper gives an overview of the ice-structure interaction research conducted at C-CORE?s geotechnical centrifuge facility. The advantages of centrifuge modeling of ice problems are discussed in terms of the scalability of ice properties, the controllability of test environments, and the quality of test data. Recent results show that ice loads measured in the centrifuge are consistent with those predicted in the prototype for a wide range of ice-structure interaction scenarios.
