Polar Transportation Equipment--Four-Wheel-Drive Vehicle with High-Flotation Tires by W. H Beard( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A four-wheel-drive vehicle with a V-8 engine, automatic transmission, 11:00 x 15 bar-tread, high-flotation tires, and a panel delivery body was tested over improved roads on abutting areas of snow, ice and frozen ground at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, for a 2-year period between Deep Freeze 67 and 69. It was used to haul light cargo and passengers both summer and winter in all kinds of weather, including temperatures to -50F. It was driven with ease by numerous drivers with varying degrees of winter driving experience on both smooth and rough roads, through snowdrifts up to 2 feet deep, and up 20% grades covered with patches of ice. Only minor maintenance and repairs were required in 15,000 miles of operation. During Deep Freeze 68, a four-wheel-drive vehicle similar to the test vehicle except for a station wagon body was adopted by the Naval Support Forces, Antarctica, as a command vehicle for McMurdo Station. The vehicle with either body configuration is recommended for inclusion in the equipment allowance list for a polar coastal station where fast comfortable transportation is essential for effective operation.

Polar transportation equipment one-ton power wagon with high-flotation tires by W. H Beard( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two modified Model S6W300 1-ton power wagons equipped with low-pressure 17.00 x 16 highflotation tires were used on all types of roads and trails on adjoining areas of snow, ice, and frozen ground at McMurdo, Antarctica, during the summer seasons of FY-64 and FY-56. One was used as a camp service vehicle to haul supplies and personnel between McMurdo Station on Ross Island and the NCEL camp on the Ross Ice Shelf, a distance of about 6 miles. The other was used to support snow-compaction studies on the Ross Ice Shelf and at Williams Field. Both power wagons performed well with a minimum of repair and maintenance, and no special skills were required for their operation and upkeep. They could be driven over all types of roads and trails, including 1-day-old equipment-packed trails on deep snow and icy roads with grades up to 20%. During Deep Freeze 65 the S6W300 power wagon equipped with 17.00 x 16 tires was adopted by the U.S. Naval Support Forces, Antarctica, as an interim standard light-duty vehicle for McMurdo Station.

Polar construction equipment - investigation of drilling equipment by W. H Beard( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The drilling of holes in snow, ice and permafrost is important in polar operations but presents problems not generally encountered in normal earth and rock drilling. Holes are required both for determining the nature of the subsurface and for placing utility poles, piling and other structural elements. This technical note presents the results of preliminary tests being conducted to improve drilling methods and techniques, and describes a rotary-type drill with 12-foot folding tower being used in this work. Results of these tests indicate that additional work is required for improving methods of drilling both deep holes and large-diameter holes in snow, ice and permanently frozen ground. Future work will include evaluation of a tri-cone roller rock bit and a 14-inch pipe drill with tungsten-carbide hardfaced cutting edge. (Author)
