STRENGTH CALCULATIONS OF ICE COVER
When the ice cover of rivers and inland waters is used for national-economic purposes (construction, exploration, and transportation) it becomes necessary to calculate its carrying capacity. However, this calculation cannot be always carried out, since many related problems are as yet unresolved. The article deals with one of these problems--verifying the strength of ice cover for known values of forces and stresses acting on it. Existing suggestions for verifying the strength of ice cover are analyzed, studies made by the authors are outlined, and on the basis of these findings new suggestions are validated. Only the case of unprolonged residence of loads on ice is considered.
