Abstract : A straight-wall cut-and-cover snow trench was constructed at Camp Century, Greenland, during the 1962 summer, to house tests performed by USA CRREL Project 33, Feasibility Study of Pile Foundations in Snow. In this report, the parameters used to design the trench and the equipment and methods used in the construction are presented and evaluated. Time-motion studies covering all phases of construction are included as a guide for planning and evaluation of similar construction. Performance is discussed and documented by instrumentation installed in the trench.
