RESEARCH ON AN AIR LUBRICATED SNOW PLOW

The development of high speed guided ground transport systems has been carried out in North America and elsewhere for over a decade. For these systems to be applied in temperate zones that experience snowfalls, some improvements in dealing with snow will have to be made if the high speed systems are to be used advantageously in winter as well as in summer. Investigations have been conducted on unconventional methods of removing snow from a substrate. One of the methods investigated was a means of reducing the dynamic friction of snow on a snow plow blade. Air is supplied to the surface of a blade to provide a lubricating film. /Author/
