Abstract:

The influence of relief and elevation of the place on the magnitude of the glaze ice load on the cable of standard equipment for measuring ice deposits was arrived at by using the relationship K sub P between the loads at stations located on mountain slopes and hilltops, and the loads at a station located on a plain on the windward side of the slope. K sub P is shown to be a function of the elevation of the place, wind direction relative to the the slope during glaze ice formation, elevation of the reference plain station, and magnitude of the glaze ice load.
