Abstract (english): 
Design loads are a central element of ship construction, because they influence plate and frame thickness. For the construction of ships that are destined to navigate in cold areas, it is extremely important to take into account the loads of ice impacts and their location on the hull. But ice is a particularly inconsistent material. To measure ice-induced loads, a lot of measurement has been undertaken, many of them used strain gauges. However, long-term strain gauge measurements are rare. In this bachelor’s thesis the state-of-the-art strain-gauge measurements are to be reviewed and problems with strain-gauge measurements will be discussed. Suggestions for improvement on problems like long cable complexity, big measurement setup, complicated installation, external power supply and long-term maintenance by humans while measuring will also be submitted.
Therefore, different systems and measurement possibilities should be compared in the context of long-term strain gauge measurements. A feasible solution for the mentioned problems, but also to identify the location and force of ice impact, will be designed.
