Record #82085:

Hot sand for improved traction on icy roads / Matthew K. Reckard.

Title: Hot sand for improved traction on icy roads / Matthew K. Reckard.
Author(s): Reckard, Matthew K.
Date: 1986.
Publisher: New York: American Society of Civil Engineers
In: Cold Regions Engineering. Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference..., Anchorage, Alaska, February 24-26, 1986. (1986.),
Abstract: Tests showed that sand preheated to 82°C improved friction values. Sand penetrates cold ice surface by melting and then freezes in place, leaving gritty surface. Field trials in Alaska planned.
Notes:
