Description: Special Report
Summary: This report is based on an analysis of data obtained during the 1952-53 Snow Compaction Trials conducted at Kapuskasing, Canada, A similar report of these tests has been prepared by the representatives of DED, ERDL, BuDOCKS and RCAF and distributed as a classified DED report (1952-53). Both reports are in general agreement. Where there are apparent disagreements, possible reasons for the difference in interpretation of results are presented. It is apparent from a study of both reports that insufficient data were available for a satisfactory evaluation of the processes used.
