Pile Ice Jacking Force

This spreadsheet allows the user to estimate the uplift force on a pile resulting from the buoyancy of ice covering piles in a river or watercourse with fluctuating water levels. As the water rises, the buoyancy of the ice adhered to the pile results in an uplift force on the pile which can be significant.
