Fractal characteristics of ice / A.B. Cammaert, Greg B. Crocker.

Title: Fractal characteristics of ice / A.B. Cammaert, Greg B. Crocker.
Author(s): Cammaert, A. B.
Crocker, Greg B.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: St. John's, Newfoundland: Memorial University of Newfoundland, Ocean Engineering Research Centre
In: POAC'91 : the 11th International Conference on Port and Ocean Engineering under Arctic Conditions, September 24-28, 1991, St. John's, Canada. (1991.), Vol.1.
Abstract: Many broken and crushed materials exhibit fractal characteristics, but, at present, there are insufficient data to confirm that ice behaves similarly. To provide representative indicator of fractal behaviour, series of laboratory tests were carried out in which fresh-water and sea-ice samples were crushed, and resulting particle-size distributions measured. Size distributions of ice floes for various geographic regions were studied, also size distribution of icebergs on Grand Banks. These data suggest that crushed ice does exhibit fractal behaviour, but particle-size distributions controlled by thermal and/or other mechanical processes are not fractal.
