As a complement to earlier measurements on the friction of both granular fresh-water ice and S2 columnar salt-water ice, new experiments were performed on the friction of S2 columnar fresh-water ice sliding against itself at low velocities (5×10-7 to 5×10-1m s-1)and at -10°C, using the same double-shear device as was used earlier.The results showed that under a given set of experimental conditions the kinetic coefficient of friction of S2 fresh-water ice compares favorably with that of the other two variants.The experiments also revealed friction-induced surface cracks and recrystallized grains.These deformation features are explained, respectively, in terms of fracture mechanics and an earlier model of dynamic recrystallization in ice.
