Preliminary experiments on creep crack growth in freshwater ice
Summer Annual Meeting of the Applied Mechanics Division of ASME, June 6, 1993 - June 9

Because of the high homologous temperature at which ice is normally found, creep deformation is a mechanism that is often observed when ice is loaded. However, it is not clear to what extent creep crack growth (growth of a crack under constant, creep, loading) occurs in ice, if indeed it does. A preliminary series of experiments have been performed to determine the extent of creep crack growth in freshwater ice. The results of these experiments are presented, and the implications of these results are discussed.
