Abstract: Investigation of natural processes of deformation and fracture of ice covers, and processes of its interaction with icebreaker or ice-resistant structures requires as a rule considerations over a range of scales. In this paper we shall demonstrate some typical problems where the mutual influence of the scales is important.
