dc.descriptionAbstract: A model study of simulated drifting snow was conducted in a hydraulic flume. Various structures at the Safeguard facilities in North Dakota were modeled at scales of 1:100 and 1:200. Preliminary results indicate that drifting snow problems are minimal at this site, except for the utility tunnel entrance to the Missile Site Radar structure. Excessive drifting occurred when the flow approached the buildings at a 45° angle to any of the sides. The drifts were reduced significantly when the flow was normal to any of the sides. Simulated flow directions were based on meteorological wind rose data. Field verification of the amount and extent of the drifts has not been completed.-
