Abstract : Tensile strength measurements on ice cylinders adhering to stainless steel have been made as a function of rate of loading, thickness and cross-sectional area of specimens, and temperature. The experimental results are interpreted by means of a statistical treatment involving imperfections in the specimens. The statistics for a model consisting of a large number of parallel elements is elaborated. The conclusion reached is that the tensile strength is a statistical function of the volume and cross-sectional area of the specimens due to imperfections. Superimposed on to the statistical effect is a stress distribution effect, which becomes predominant for large volumes.
