Abstract: This state-of-the-art review addresses, in four separate papers, frost heave processes and their control. A review of the fundamental principles of soil freezing and thawing is presented together with an introduction to the modern literature of ice segregation and frost heaving. Current approaches and information concerning frost heave design for foundations, buried pipelines, artificial ground freezing, in-ground cryogenic liquid storages, and pavements and other roadbeds are discussed, and key research needs are summarized. Geotechnical design of earthen and earth-supported structures affected by subsoil thawing is reviewed. Finally, methods for determining the frost susceptibility of soil and granular materials used in road and airfield construction are reviewed.

Subject Headings: Frost heave | Frozen soils | Foundation design | Pavement design | Buried pipes | Subsoils
