The course introduces the problems of ice mechanics to the students and provides with the experience of operating research equipment in the laboratory and in the field conditions. The course includes lectures on basic concepts of ice mechanics and ice interactions with offshore structures and ships, lectures about standards of Russia for the calculation of ice loads on offshore structures, includes laboratory and field activities in the Laboratory of Ice Research (FEFU) and in the bay near FEFU campus. Prior to the field activities, special lectures introduce the equipment (used for the measurements of characteristics and strength of sea ice, ice hardness measurements by drop ball technique, etc.) to the students.
