AbstractResults of a series of uniaxial compression tests with EG/AD/S correct density model ice are presented. A wide range of strain rates (10(-8) < < 10(1) s(-1)) was covered at three temperatures, -2°, -5°, and -8°C. The temperatures chosen are typical of those encountered in propeller-ice interaction tests/ Results reported here are for samples taken from a 110 mm thick ice sheet. Each test specimen was machined into a rectangular prism before testing. Multiple tests at nominally identical strain rates and temperatures were conducted. The failure behaviour of the model ice was found to be similar to other ice, as were the stress/strain rate and stress-temperature relationship.
