The article discusses the loads moving in parallel or in series with each other. The loads are modeled by a given system of the surface pressure moving on the plate with constant speed. It is assumed that water is an ideal incompressible liquid, the motion of the liquid is potential, and ice cover is modeled by originally unstrained homogeneous isotropic visco-elastic plate. The solution is carried out by using Fourier integral transformations. The article analyzes the influence of the distance between the loads, their speed of movement, the location and linear dimensions of loads, the depth of water area on the possibility of an ice sheets breaking.
