This new edition gives a peerless presentation of soil mechanics for frozen ground conditions and a variety of frozen ground support systems used on construction project worldwide. An authoritative update of the industry standard, the new edition covers the essential theory, applications, and design methods using frozen ground in the construction of deep shafts, tunnels, deep excavations, and subsurface containment barriers. New materials features design models for pavement structures used in seasoned frost and permafrost areas, new information on the movement of fluid phase contaminants in frozen ground, and helpful appendices offering guidance on common frozen ground tests and SI unit conversions. The new edition gives the essential information engineers, geologists, and students need in a complete reference, including up-to-date information on: sensitivity of frozen ground to climate changes; experimental work on frozen soil creep and strength; monitoring creep in frozen slopes; frost protection of foundations using ground insulation; highway insulation; and load restriction for seasonal frost areas.

Subject Headings: Frozen soils | Frost | Soil strength | Seasonal variations | Pavement design | Ground motion | Creep
