    Abstract

    A testing system incorporating strain measuring, load application and monitoring, data acquisition and monitoring, and the capacity for an optional pulse-velocity subsystem was designed to determine the mechanical properties of ice. The testing system enables determination of the following test parameters and types of specimen behavior: axial stress and stress rate, axial and circumferential strain and strain rates, and optional P- and S-wave pulse velocities. These data allow the determination of a variety of static and dynamic ice properties.
