STUDY ON FLYING SNOW WITH THE PROTOTYPE HIGH SPEED SNOW PLOUGH FOR RAILWAY

To combat the effects of snow on the high-speed Shinkansen lines, tests were conducted to determine the best design for a high-speed snow plow and also to determine the pressures to which wayside structures would be subjected when such a unit was operated. Several scoop angles were tested at speeds from 28.2 to 90.2 km/h. The height and direction of flying snow and its pressure on wayside fences were measured and extrapolated to estimate the effect of trains displacing snow at speeds to 250 km/h.
