Experiments Involving Moving Loads
- 99 Downloads
There have been various experiments to investigate the effects of loads moving across floating ice sheets. In chronological order, field experiments reported in the open literature are due to Wilson (1955, 1958), Anderson (1958a), Sunberg-Falkenmark (1963), Eyre (1977), Goodman and Holdsworth (1978), Takizawa (1978), Kubo (1980), Beltaos (1981), Davys (1984), Takizawa (1985), Squire et al. (1985, 1986), Takizawa (1987), Squire et al. (1988), and Takizawa (1988). The field work spans both hemispheres, although there is some bias toward the northern hemisphere simply because transport across ice sheets in the Arctic has been more common. Some laboratory experiments also have been reported by Hinchey (1987) and Whitten and Hinchey (1988). Some of these publications naturally contain a theoretical element.
