DESIGNING HIGHWAYS SITUATED IN AREAS OF DRIFTING SNOW (UTFORMING AV VEGER I DRIVSN0OMRADER)

This report describes the use of climatic data for the design of highways situated in areas with drifting snow. It also concentrates on the cross sectional design of such highways. Three methods for snow depth surveying are tested and described. The report concludes that a combination of tachymetric and botanical methods is generally recommended for the surveying of snowdepths when planning mountain highways. (Author)
