A theory on the elasticity of sea ice
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 1983
The brine content of sea ice influences many of its properties like e.g. thermal conductivity, melting poin and crystal structure. The phase relations of the ice-brine system is described and used for the calculation of the bulk density and elasticity of sea ice. The mechanical strength of sea ice n in relation to brine content is also briefly reviewed.
