Abstract

The effect of horizontal load from moving ice on the scaling of sea ice fracture was examined. The maximum force to be exerted by a moving ice plate on an obstacle presented by a fixed structure was investigated for the purpose. An asymptotic approach was used to obtain approximate solutions for the size effects of ice thickness, effective structure diameter and size of the finite ice floe on the scaling of sea ice fracture.
