AbstractA series of indentation tests were performed on first year sea ice. Flat and hemispherical indentor heads were forced into a semi-infinite vertical ice wall. The tests were conducted at high loading rates and brittle ice failure predominates. The results of the tests are presented and penetration and contact factors are discussed in terms of failure modes observed.
