Description

Ice Mechanics for Geophysical and Civil Engineering Applications; (PDF) offers the tools and concepts of ice mechanics; along with examples of their application in the fields of glaciology; civil engineering; and climate research in cold regions. It begins with an account of the most important physical properties of sea and polar ice treated as an anisotropic polycrystalline material; and analyses relevant field observations and experimental measurements. The ebook focuses on theoretical descriptions of the material behavior of ice in different stress; deformation and deformation-rate regimes on spatial scales spanning from single ice crystals; those common in civil engineering applications; up to scales of thousands of kilometers; feature of large; grounded polar ice caps in Greenland and Antarctica.

Furthermore; it provides a range of numerical formulations based on either discrete (finite difference; finite-element and smoothed particle hydrodynamics) methods or asymptotic expansion methods; which have been used by theoretical glaciologists; geophysicists; and civil engineers to simulate the behaviour of ice in a range of problems of importance to civil engineering and glaciology; and discusses the outcomes of these simulations. The ebook is intended for engineers; scientists; and graduate students interested in mathematical and numerical modeling of an extensive variety of geophysical and civil engineering problems involving natural ice.

NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Ice Mechanics for Geophysical and Civil Engineering Applications in PDF. No access codes are included.
