Measurements of high amplitude/low cycle fatigue of sea ice in conjunction with the characteristic length of sea ice, temperature and salinity profiles and acoustic emissions
Entry ID: K131_1989_1998_NZ_1

Abstract: The high amplitude/low cycle fatigue properties of sea ice in situ at high strain were investigated by developing a cantilever system of sea ice beams and using hydraulic equipment to exercise these beams to determine the rheological properties of sea ice in situ. This allows the mechanical behaviour to be determined under a variety of various loading conditions and different ice types (i.e. very ... View entire text
