Abstract : We held the Second International Conference on Snow Engineering in Santa Barbara, California, June 21-26, 1992. Scientists, engineers and architects discussed the nature, distribution and behavior of snow as it affects constructed facilities. The technical sessions focused on the following topics: (1) Ground snow; (2) Structural case histories; (3) Analytical modeling; (4) Experimental modeling; (5) Snow control; (6) Mechanical properties and behavior; (7) Building design; and (8) Codes and standards.
