Abstract:

The report describes the modeling procedures and results of static loading of structural elements made of processed snow. The general objective was to study the response of processed-snow beams and arches to static loads, and to formulate criteria that will make it possible to design processed-snow structures to resist the airblast effects of nuclear explosions. The primary objective was to determine the response and verify the adequacy of the modeling procedures for snow structures subjected to static loadings. Author
