Abstract:

New experiments and methods in determining the multiple aspects of ice elasticity and firmness are outlined and discussed in conjunction with new types of seismic instruments used in measuring the mechanical qualities of ice, their variations and the factors causing them. The practical objective of the tests is to determine the load-carrying capacity of various types of ice in various regions and to make the work of icebreakers more effective. Author
