Abstract

While theory and field experiment are in good accord, the computation of the deflexions, strains, and consequently, the stresses initiated within an ice sheet due to a passing vehicle or a landing aircraft requires the thickness of the sheet to be known together with other particulars of the physical and mechanical character of the ice. This information may be found by direct measurement, usually by coring and perhaps cantilever tests, or inferred from instruments capable of monitoring the effect of the load directly.
