Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 5, Pg. 113-146

Document Type: Journal Paper


Collapse of floating ice sheets under load is estimated on basis of rigid-plastic plate on elastic foundation for various loading and boundary conditions; results are compared with field observations in operation of ice roads and floating airfields and some small-scale loading tests. (20 refs.)
