Abstract: Timber piles provide stable foundation in permafrost for large US Air Force composite type building at Kotzebue, Alaska; pile load-deflection tests and soil temperature investigations performed during and after construction contributed data on point bearing support, pile deflections, slurry-pile adfreeze strengths, subgrade thermal changes and slurry freeze-back time.
