Description: Technical Report
Summary: Tables of the basic functions and their first derivatives necessary for the solution of problems related to the trafficability of ice sheets are tabulated. A differential equation is given which describes the bearing capacity of a floating ice sheet (considered as a plate on an elastic foundation) together with a solution in terms of Kelvin functions. The formula for these functions and their first derivatives are also presented. The functions were computed with a Bendix G-15D electric computer and are accurate to the last digit (12th) except for 4, which are occasionally in error on the last digit.
