This book presents a state-of-the-practice review on freezing and thawing of soil-water systems through ten interrelated papers on this subject. The papers review the following topics: Thawing of frozen clays; modeling and applications of soil freezing and thawing; partial verification of a thaw settlement model; hydraulic properties of selected soils; a continuum approach to frost heave modeling; a model for dielectric constants of frozen soils; a numerical model of subsea permafrost; frost heave of full-depth asphalt concrete pavements; the origin of aggradational ice in permafrost; and experimental investigation of regelation flow with an ice sandwich permeater.
