Record #125414:

Proposition of a net-like model of snow / Zempachi Watanabe.

Title: Proposition of a net-like model of snow / Zempachi Watanabe.
Author(s): Watanabe, Zempachi.
Date: 1993.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 18 (1993)
Abstract: Thin-section photographs show that snow consists of lumpy parts and connecting branches. Model proposed here agrees with this real state. Derived from four packing forms of isometric spheres by shrinking original spheres while maintaining and connecting points of contact as column. Texture of model can be varied by setting packing form, shrinking ratio and thickness of connecting branches. While density and strength of material of model are set to values of polycrystalline ice, model density and tensile strength agree with published data for dry compacted snow.
Notes:
