Abstract:

The stress-density relaionships of snow-water mixtures were investigated and are shown as functions of water content, initial snow density, initial snow-water mixture density and rate of deformation. An increase in water content in snow at a particular density or a decrease in the rate of deformation or strain rate decreases the stress, but apparently not the specific energy required to reach a specific mixture density.
