Record #112823:

The size effect of nominal ice failure pressure, fractals, self similarity, and nonstationarity / B.L. Parsons.

Title: The size effect of nominal ice failure pressure, fractals, self similarity, and nonstationarity / B.L. Parsons.
Author(s): Parsons, B. L.
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: Pressure/area curve shows that observed ice-failure pressure is proportional to inverse square root of loaded area. Two recent heuristic models for explaining this are compared and found to be modelling same roughness profile, self-similar surface of fractal dimension 1,5, with nonstationary root mean square roughness proportional to L¹/². Scale effect is alternately explained by means of load-sharing mechanism (Bhat 1990) and nonstationarity (Parsons 1990). Modification of load-sharing mechanism is shown to be necessary in light of nonstationarity of profile.
