Abstract:

The document states that up to the present time there have been no theoretical developments on problems involved in erecting snow-protective structures made of snow along highways and railways and finding their optimal parameters. It presents a theoretical study of aerodynamic properties of snow-protective structures made of snow. Derived formulas afford calculations for practical purposes. Author
