Record #88935:

Energy analysis of confined compression and shear behavior of snow / Raymond N. Yong.

Title: Energy analysis of confined compression and shear behavior of snow / Raymond N. Yong.
Author(s): Yong, Raymond N.
Date: 1987.
Publisher: Ottawa: National Research Council Canada. Associate Committee on Geotechnical Research
In: National Research Council of Canada. Associate Committee on Geotechnical Research. Technical Memorandum. (1987.), Vol. 140 (1987)
Abstract: Problem of assessing response performance of snow under load is often complicated by its high volume change characteristics. To consider energy transfer from loading surface to supporting snow cover, and snow behaviour under load in terms of energy of deformation and shear, it is necessary to describe confined compression and shear performance of snow, recognizing that large density increase occurs under tractive forces. Study provides experimental input and energy surfaces describing confined compressive and shear effects, which are related to age and initial density of snow.
