MODEL TECHNIQUE FOR CONTROLLING SNOW ON ROADS AND RUNWAYS

SNOW HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MOST DIFFICULT ELEMENT TO PREDICT AND ALSO TO CONTROL IN AREAS WHERE THERE IS HEAVY ACCUMULATION. AN OPEN CHANNEL WATER FLUME AND MODELS HAVE BEEN USED TO PREDICT CONSISTENTLY THE PATTERNS DEVELOPED BY FALLING SNOW. LIGHT, WHITE SAND IS USED TO SIMULATE SNOW. VARIOUS DENSITIES OF SNOW STORMS ARE CREATED WITHIN MINUTES, AND QUALITATIVE ANALYSES ARE MADE FOR REMEDIAL MEASURES. A WIND TUNNEL STUDY IS CARRIED OUT TO ENSURE POSITIVE RESULTS. /AUTHOR/
