Thaw-settlement problems have been investigated by several researchers using methods based on one-dimensional theory. The purpose of this note is to show that methods presented can also be used to estimate settlements that occur in a thawing embankment. The data used to support this observation were obtained from field measurements of settlements that occurred in a test embankment contracted during the winter of 1975.
