Abstract

The relationship between indentation pressure and indentation area is examined through field ice indentation tests. The local ice pressures obtained here show intermittently sharp peaks and recessions, and do not satisfy the assumption that ice pressure in an independent ice failure zone follows the log- normal distribution used by KryHJ. The nature of the contact between ice sheet and structure during indentation of structure into ice sheet is investigated statistically. It is shown
