Elastic-Plastic Analysis of the Interaction between Ice and Offshore Structures
In this paper, the mechanical properties of ice, which are affected by the existence of cavities and the different tensile-compression strength ratio, are analyzed in micromechanics view. Then the constitutive equation is established, and the distribution of stress field caused by the ice-structure interaction is constructed with the constitutive equation. Finally, the ultimate bearing capacity of ice is also discussed with different values of pressure sensitivity parameter and the tension-compression ratio. Thus, this paper provides the theoretical reference for offshore platforms design.
