Abstract

We have studied the possibility of producing a directed action upon the process of local stress relaxation in interfacial media occurring in a complex stressed state by changing the state of boundaries between structural elements. The experiments were performed on the ice sheet of Lake Baikal, which represents a hierarchically organized fault-block structure and belongs to the class of interfacial media. It is shown that, by changing the state of boundaries between structural elements, it is possible to influence the regime of deformation of the interfacial medium as a whole. The general features of the observed effect are confirmed within the framework of a theoretical model.
