Abstract

Abstract A series of ice-sheet growth measurements in a small cold-room ice tank and in the large ice tank at the Institute for Marine Dynamics lends support to the use of the quasi-steady model for thin ice growth prediction. In view of the linearity of the ice temperature profile, a method is proposed to deduce the surface heat transfer coefficient from this profile. Using these results a simple, approximate, analytical theory is developed for flooded ice growth. The theory is used to predict the optimum flooding rate for the construction of flooded ice platforms and to suggest how this flooding rate may be estimated in the field.
