Welcome to the opening of the snow igloo!
Between Teknikens hus and the D-House, by the fountain, Luleå
The students on the course snow and ice at Luleå University of Technology are working with building the snow igloo in the middle of the university campus in Luleå. The purpose of the project is to learn how to construct a snow building. The igloo is built using an inflatable igloo tent, which is 6 meters in diameter and 4.5 meters high and which is clad with snow to create a snow igloo. When the snow is frozen, the tent is emptied of air and removed.
Fine-grained soils are mostly not suitable as terraces under road or railway banks or other major structures. For clay soils, one of the main causes is their often soft consistency with low deformation modulus, but for silt soils their frost sensitivity
