Description: Technical Report
Summary: The purpose of Project 1, Approach Roads in Boulder Fields, was to develop effective methods and techniques for the construction and maintenance of roads on a bouldery, permafrost terrain, typified by the TUTO area near Thule Air Force Base, Greenland. The purpose of Project 10A, Ramp Roads, was to investigate and develop methods, techniques, and design criteria for construction and maintenance of gravel-fill roads on ice surfaces of the glacial type such as occurs at TUTO. This report summarizes the results of field work from June to September 1954 on the phases assigned to the Arctic Construction and Frost Effects Laboratory. The report has been kept as concise as possible, dealing only with the most pertinent aspects of the entire problem.
