Data for the publication: Hysteresis and dichotomous mechanics in cyclic crushing failure of confined freshwater columnar ice



These data refer to the test campaign conducted at the Delft University of Technology Ice Laboratory between 4 July and 3 October 2022. The "Optical apparatus with Linear Actuator loading Frame" (OLAF) was used to conduct cyclic compressive crushing of freshwater columnar ice. Detailed explanations of the test setup, test matrix, and test results are provided in a manuscript under revision at the journal Cold Regions Science and Technology. All Metadata will be included upon acceptance of the manuscript. Refer to the README.txt file contained in the data for more information. Contact Cody C. Owen ( for additional information.
