AbstractA modification to the renormalization group approach of Allègre et al (1982) and Turcotte (1986) is developed for ice. This yields the fractal dimension of 2.42, compared to 2.5 observed by Timco and Jordaan (1987) for the distribution of crushed mass as a function of fragment size M a r-D. By prohibiting failure along one orientation of cracks in ice, and reducing the number of fragile configurations in the plane of weakness model of value of 2.42 is obtained.
