AbstractThe problems in Canada involving the strength of undisturbed snow, particularly in relation to transport, are mainly of a dynamic nature. That is, before the application of a load, the snow is relatively unstressed; when the load is applied, the forces involved are sufficient to cause the structure of the snow to collapse.The first part of this report deals with the observations made with the simple apparatus and the second part with the analysis precipitated by these observations.
