Abstract

Wind-tunnel simulations of the response of 2 moss crusts to grain impact indicate that, given sufficient time, these surfaces will deteriorate under very low wind velocities. This study attempts to isolate the 2 effects, the impact force and the number density of impacts, in order to evaluate the relative importance of each. In parallel with these experiments, the frequency distributions of ultimate strength and penetration energy were determined for each of the 2 crust types via penetrometry
