Record #21070:

A description of the iceberg aircraft carrier and the bearing of the mechanical properties of frozen wood pulp upon some problems of glacier flow / Max F. Perutz.

Title: A description of the iceberg aircraft carrier and the bearing of the mechanical properties of frozen wood pulp upon some problems of glacier flow / Max F. Perutz.
Author(s): Perutz, Max F.
Date: 1948.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1948.), Vol. 1(3) (1948)
Abstract: Describes use of pykrete (Pyke's concrete) as construction material, pointing out how use of wood pulp improves mechanical properties of ice, and casts interesting light on mechanism of glacier flow. Discussion, p.103-104. Operation Habbakuk.
