Standards for Pile Load Tests in Permafrostby Frederick E. Crory, US Army Cold Regions Research &, Engineering Lab, Hanover, NH, USA,
Abstract: A requirement exists to establish standard procedures for conducting pile load tests in permanently frozen soils. The methods outlined in the ASTM Standards for piles in thawed soils do not address permanently frozen soils, the effect of increasing load capacity with decreasing ground temperatures or the potential creep rate of piles in ice-rich frozen soils.
