Continuing the analysis of fracture size effect in Part I, which was focused on the maximum force in vertical penetration of ice, Part II tackles the problem maximum force that can be applied by a moving ice plate on an obstacle presented by a fixed structure. Based on an asymptotic approach, approximate solutions for are obtained for the size effects of ice thickness, effective structure diameter and, in the case of a finite ice floe, the size of the floe.
