Record #119392:

Snowdrift around Antarctic building - effects of corner geometry and wind incidence / K.C.S. Kwok, D.J. Smedley, D.H. Kim.

Title: Snowdrift around Antarctic building - effects of corner geometry and wind incidence / K.C.S. Kwok, D.J. Smedley, D.H. Kim.
Author(s): Kwok, K. C. S.
Smedley, D. J.
Kim, D. H.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Golden, CO: International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE)
In: Proceedings of the Second (1992) International Offshore and Polar Engineering Conference. Vol. 2. (1992.),
Abstract: Modelling of snowdrifting was carried out in wind tunnel, using seven models based on extended dimensions of shipping container. Tests were carried out to investigate effects of varying corner geometry and angle of wind incidence on drifting. Results used to formulate guidelines for buildings in Antarctica.
Notes:

In: The proceedings of the Second (1992) International Offshore and Polar Engineering Conference. Vol. 2 / Michael S. Triantafyllou, Jin S. Chung, Karel Karal, Alfred L. Tunik, eds.
