Record #97572:

Alluvium-reinforced ice: a preliminary report of bending strength tests / W.A. Nixon.

Title: Alluvium-reinforced ice: a preliminary report of bending strength tests / W.A. Nixon.
Author(s): Nixon, W. A.
Date: 1989.
In: Cold Regions Science and Technology. (1989.), Vol. 16(3) (1989)
Abstract: Naturally-occurring, readily available material suitable as construction material for offshore drilling platforms, temporary construction pads, etc. in Arctic regions. Presents preliminary measurements, which show that bending strength tends to increase with decreasing particle size, and also suggest that critical percentage reinforcement exists, above which value considerably higher bending strengths are obtained. Further work continues on this potentially useful technique.
Notes:

Keywords: 624.147 -- Ice and snow as foundation and engineering materials.
622.24 -- Drilling and boring.
E12 -- Glaciology: frozen ground / snow and ice engineering.
