dc.descriptionAbstract: Military winter bridging procedures with an ice cover present on the waterway may involve cutting the ice away with chain saws to provide an ice-free crossing zone. This report investigates the cutting rates possible from one type of chain saw with two chain configurations, two operators, three cut lengths and three ice thicknesses. A statistical analysis is used to determine the effect the various factors have upon cutting rate and suggestions are made for chain modifications that might further improve cutting perfomance.-
