Record #109974:

Flexural strength of sand-reinforced ice / W.A. Nixon, L.J. Weber.

Title: Flexural strength of sand-reinforced ice / W.A. Nixon, L.J. Weber.
Author(s): Nixon, W. A.
Weber, L. J.
Date: 1991.
In: Journal of Cold Regions Engineering. (1991.), Vol. 5(1) (1991)
Abstract: Ice reinforced with alluvium may yield economic building material for remote Arctic locations. Three-point bending tests were carried out on reinforced ice at -5, -10, and -20°C. All samples exhibited brittle failure. Results of Weibull analysis showed that mean bending strength and Weibull modulus increase with decreasing temperature. May be explained by considering variations of unfrozen water content of samples and fracture toughness of ice matrix with temperature. Simple model based on failure arising from propagation of flaws within ice matrix shows good agreement with experimental results.
Notes:
