Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report describes the results of tests made to determine the dynamic Young’s modulus E of young sea ice. The ice samples were mainly parallelepipeds but a few were 7.62-cm-diam. Cores. The longitudinal wave velocity was determined by measuring the time required for a sound wave to travel the length of the sample. The measured wave velocities were corrected, by Love’s frequency equation, to apply to infinite wavelengths. The flexural strength of the ice was determined by conducting a number of simple beam tests. The average value for the flexural strength was 11.3 kg/cm^2.
