Description: Special Report
Introduction: In order to gain a greater insight into the behavior of snow and to provide a body of data for the purpose of checking theoretical developments in snow mechanics, a direct shear experiment was performed on a standardized disaggregated snow, investigating the effect of porosity, age-hardening time, normal stress, and temperature on the sheaf strength. Incidental to the direct shear test, consolidation, frictional resistance, and strain data were recorded. This report describes the experimental procedure, and provides the data obtained from the experiment.
