Abstract : A technique for strengthening of the ice on naturally frozen rivers is to successively flood and freeze within a confined width, creating a much thicker 'ice bridge.' An exact analysis is made of the elastic deformation and the moments in the bridge for arbitrarily placed, concentrated and distributed loads. The results are given in terms of infinite convergent series, which may easily be evaluated numerically. For the case of the infinitely wide river, the solutions become integrals. (Author)
