Abstract
Au Canada, on prévoit que les changements climatiques auront une incidence considérable sur l'industrie forestière. Les routes d'accès sont particulièrement vulnérables aux effets immédiats et à court terme des changements climatiques. Des stratégies d'adaptation pour les routes d'accès et les infrastructures doivent être élaborées et leur mise en œuvre doit commencer, afin de s'assurer que les infrastructures routières nécessaires pour accéder à la forêt soient maintenues et résistent aux effets des changements climatiques. Ce rapport présente les risques et la vulnérabilité des routes d'accès aux changements climatiques, ainsi que des méthodes et pratiques recommandées pour s'y adapter.

Abstract
The changes to climatic conditions in Canada are anticipated to have a significant impact on the Canadian forest industry. Resource roads are considered particularly vulnerable to the immediate and short-term impacts of climate change. Adaptation strategies for resource roads and infrastructure must be developed and implementation initiated to ensure that the road infrastructure required for forest access is maintained and made resilient to climatic impacts. This report presents the risks and vulnerabilities of resource roads to climate change and suggested adaptation methods and practices.

Abstract
Forest-origin biomass estimates were made by FPInnovations for a location in Northern Alberta, largely following the process previously established for six BC Timber Supply Areas using FPInterface (2010 13). The biomass inventory was based on 20-year harvest and road network plans for Crown land provided by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry as well as local forest tenure holders.

Abstract
Ce rapport définit par une série d'équations les divers facteurs qui affectent la consommation d'énergie d'un véhicule de transport. Il établit de plus en plus que l'on peut obtenir les constantes et les fonctions nécessaires grâce à la méthode dite "par inertie", méthode simple et précise dont on peut se servir directement sur le terrain sur les véhicules en marche. Les données obtenues lor d'essais préliminaires montrent la relation étroite entre les résultats de l'essai et les résultats calculés théoriquement.

Abstract
Les relations mathématiques et graphiques entre les conditions d'utilisation d'un véhicule et les pertes énergétiques ont été développées dans le cadre de la définition continue d'une base de données informatisée grâce à laquelle il est possible de mesurer et d'optimiser les systèmes de transport. Pour démontrer l'application pratique de ces travaux de recherche, nous avons calculé les économies possibles dans une opération réelle de transport.

Abstract
FPInnovations, in cooperation with Alberta Transportation and the Laval University i3C Chair, undertook a review of the starting threshold for initiating winter weight hauling in Alberta. The objective of this project was to conduct an engineering analysis of freezing pavements to determine the minimum frost depth at which log hauling at winter weight premiums (WWP) in Alberta could start without compromising pavement service life. The report describes literature on freezing pavement engineering, Canadian winter weight policies, a controlled trafficking simulation of an instrumented pavement as it was frozen, and subsequent modeling to valiidate results and extrapolate results ot a wider range of pavement structures. It was recommended that the current 1.0 m starting frost depth threshold be reduced to a depth of 700 mm.

Abstract
The mathematical and graphical relationships between vehicle operating conditions on power losses have been developed in the continued definition of a computerized data base by which the efficiency of transportation systems can be measured and optimized. To demonstrate the practical application of this research work, the savings possible in a realistic haul operation have been calculated.
