Basin tests were performed at the Aalto Ice Tank to gather data on ice action and ice-structure interaction. A real-time hybrid test setup was mounted to a carriage on a bridge spanning the ice tank. A vertically sided cylindrical pile was moved through the ice by moving the carriage along the bridge. The dynamic response to the measured ice loads was simulated by the real-time hybrid test setup for a range of test structures including offshore wind turbines, a series of single- and multi-degree-of-freedom oscillators, the Norströmsgrund lighthouse and the Molikpaq caisson structure. In addition, ice loads were measured in forced vibration tests and while moving the rigid pile through the ice with a constant speed.

A full description of the data and experimental design has been submitted to Data in Brief. Metadata of this dataset will be updated once this becomes publicly available. For questions about the data contact Hayo Hendrikse (
