Description: Research Report
Summary: Shear tests of the system snow-ice/stainless steel gave pure adhesive breaks down to a temperature of about -13°C, where a sharp transition to cohesive breaks was observed. Adhesive strength of the system was a linear function of temperature and independent of cross-sectional area and height of samples in the ranges tested. Shear tests of the system ice/polystyrene gave pure adhesive breaks, with adhesive strength decreasing linearly with temperature to -15°C and independent of cross-sectional area. Tensile tests of the system ice/polystyrene revealed a linear relation between adhesive strength and temperature in the range -2°C to -25.5°C regardless of cross-sectional area and rate of stress application. The test results are interpreted on the basis of an assumed liquidlike layer at the interface.
