Description: CRREL Monograph
Abstract: This monograph presents a complete review of all successful techniques that have been used to construct and maintain snow roads, trails and aircraft landing strips. The snow properties that must be considered prior to the construction process are identified, and the kinds of apparatus available for the measure of the properties are reviewed and assessed. A discussion of construction techniques is presented, which includes the types of snow pavements, the classification of roads by use, the classification of surface and subsurface strength, the considerations impacting on site selection, the various kinds of equipment that have been developed to construct and maintain the roads, and the additives that have been used to construct high-strength roads. The design criteria that have been established are cited.
