Thermal Shock as an Ice Multiplication Mechanism. Part II. Experimental
Thermal shock tests were conducted on large numbers of ice spheres and plates, all of macroscopic size. The thermal shock was applied by cooling the specimens to the desired temperature, and then rapidly warming part of one surface by bringing water in contact with it. The spheres had a median cracking temperature of −16°C, and comparison with thermoelastic theory yielded tensile strength values for ice in the range 20–30 bars. Initiation of cracking in thick plates was a function of the...[Show more]
