In designing buildings in regions with heavy snowfall including the polar regions, formation of snowdrifts around a building is an important design issue.<BR>High-rise resort buildings have recently been built at many ski-resort areas with heavy snowfall in Japan.<BR>So, the wind tunnel experiments using model snow are carried out to predict snowdrifts around the buildings and snow load on a buildings roof. This paper describes the similarity requirements for the modeling of snowdrifting and research results on wind tunnel experiments using model snow.
