Some Promising Trends in Ice Mechanics

  title={Some Promising Trends in Ice Mechanics},
  author={Andrew Assur},
Ice sheets are inhomogeneous: properties vary strongly with depth. The theoretical treatment of plates with properties varying perpendicular to the plate has now been satisfactorily developed for floating ice sheets. However other problems are still waiting for solutions. The use of model ice is developing rapidly. Some suggestions how to analyze such ice are made. Breakthrough- loads on ice sheets diminish with duration of loading but no satisfactory solution is available based upon classical… CONTINUE READING
