Description: Technical Report
Abstract: Settlement of spread footings on snow is dependent on time, snow density, snow temperature, load intensity, footing size and footing shape. Empirical equations, based on field test results at Camp Century, Greenland, relating these parameters are developed in this report. The equations are written to permit simple hand calculations so they do not require a complex mathematical technique or computer application.
