One complication is that ice, unlike most solids, liquefies under pressure. At the grain boundaries, at higher temperature, ice can melt under strain and resolidify as the strain is relieved by the melting, leading to gradual deformation. So under gradual strain, ice is ductile. As mentioned in comments, this is hard to model. BTW, ice was used to construct ...
