Abstract : The brittle fracture of ice is considered from a physical viewpoint. Fracture under uniaxial tension is discussed in terms of crack nucleation and crack propagation. Fracture under uniaxial compression is described in terms of fracture toughness, end constraint, Coulombic friction, and crack interactions within a shear fault. Models are presented and are compared with experimental results.
