Abstract:

This paper considers the linear viscoelastic deflections and stresses of a floating ice sheet. Youngs modulus is replaced with a Maxwell model in series with a Voight model. The resulting differential equation is solved when the applied load is independent of time and is linear with time. No numerical results are given but the author claims the resulting equations agree with experiments conducted on the Novosibirsk Reservoir.
