AbstractResults are presented of flaking tests using flat jacks to measure the large scale strength of ice. The results showed (i) gas-filled flat jacks worked well provided certain safety precautions were taken (ii) the use of a stiff aluminum plate in conjunction with the compliant flat jack reduced the measured pressures somewhat, but they were still around 5.5 Mpa, and (iii) two tests on pre-damaged ice gave significantly reduced pressures of about 1.5 MPa.
