Tensile Strength of Snow using Centrifugal Technique
Keywords: Tensile strength, centrifugal machine, microstructural parameters, failure stress, probabilitydistribution, snow studies
AbstractTensile strength of snow was determined using indigenously developed automated centrifugalmachine. Processed snow (sintered at 20 °C for 4 days) samples of dia: 65 mm andheight:130 mm were tested using this machine.The experiments were conducted on sieved snowat four temperature levels of 0 °C, 3 °C,6 °C and 9 °C at density ranging from 200-460 kg/m3.Results of these experiments have been compared with the earlier suggested models. Probabilitydistribution of snow strength on the basis of current experimental data has also been presented.
