Abstract:

This report reviews the state of the art of snow traction mechanics and presents the results of a limited field exercise that allowed participants to observe and practice current snow measurement processes and vehicle test procedures. The prime recommendations of the workshop attendees were the use of parameters basic to the laws of physics for the classification of snow strength, and the use of instrumented tracked and wheeled vehicles for snow strength measurements.
