Description: Research Report
Partial Abstract: A consideration of possible expressions for the number and size of bonds intersected by a potential failure surface leads to the following expression for the strength, σ𝖿, of snow which is age hardening at a constant porosity n : NOTE: A complex equation follows at this point that would be difficult to render with the character set of this system.
