BEARING CAPACITY OF FLOATING ICE PLATE SUBJECTED TO STATIC OR QUASI-STATIC LOADS. A CRITICAL SURVEY

This report contains a critical survey of the literature on the bearing capacity of floating ice plates. It consists of a discussion of general questions, a critical survey of analytical attempts to determine the bearing capacity of floating ice plates, and a survey of field and laboratory tests on floating ice plates and their relation to the analytical results. The paper concludes with a systematic summary of the results, a discussion of observed shortcomings, and suggestions for needed investigations.
