Abstract: A mathematical model for predicting the vibrations of ice-shelves based on linear elasticity for the ice-shelf motion and potential flow for the fluid motion is developed.No simplifying assumptions such as the thinness of the ice-shelf or the shallowness of the fluid are made. The ice-shelf is modelled as a two-dimensional elastic body of an arbitrary geometry under plane-strain conditions. The model is solved using a coupled finite element method incorporating an integral equation boundary condition to represent the radiation of energy in the infinite fluid. The solution is validated by comparison with thin-beam theory and by checking energy conservation. Using the analyticity of the resulting linear system, we show that the finite element solution can be extended to the complex plane using interpolation of the linear system. This analytic extension shows that the system response is governed by a series of singularities in the complex plane. The method is illustrated through time-domain simulations as well as results in the frequency domain.
