CURRENT RESEARCH ON SNOW REMOVAL AND ICE CONTROL ON ROADS IN JAPAN

VARIOUS RESEARCH STUDIES RELATING TO SNOW AND ICE ON ROADS IN JAPAN ARE DESCRIBED. SOME OF THE RESULTS HAVE ALREADY BEEN APPLIED IN PLANNING, DESIGN, MAINTENANCE, AND OPERATION OF ROAD PROJECTS. THE STUDIES DEAL WITH THE FOLLOWING: THE ESTIMATION OF THE EFFECTS OF SNOW DEPTH, TOPOGRAPHY, AND VEGETATION ON AVALANCHE GENERATION; THE ESTIMATION OF SNOW DEPTH ALONG PLANNED ROUTES, ESPECIALLY IN MOUNTAINOUS AREAS WHERE METEOROLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS ARE NOT MADE; THE CLASSIFICATION OF SNOW ON ROAD SURFACES AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGHWAY ICE INFORMATION SYSTEM; THE SPACE NEEDED FOR ROADSIDE SNOW MOUNDS AND THE DESIGN OF THAT SPACE AND THE EFFICIENCY OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF SNOW-REMOVAL EQUIPMENT. /AUTHOR/
