AbstractObservations on rate sensitivity of uniaxial, unconfined compressive strength and deformation of freshly recovered columnar-grained first-year sea ice are described. Loads were applied parallel to the axis of the columns over a wide range of displacement rates, using a portable test machine in a field laboratory at Mould Bay in the western High Arctic of Canada. Results are analysed in terms of measured stress and strain rate to peak stress. Strengths up to 16 MN.m[-2] at -10 degrees C were obtained, with failure strains in the range of 0.1 to 0.3 per cent.
