Structurally Enhanced Foundations: A Functional Solution to Thaw Strain in Frozen Sand and Gravel
Some building sites with perennially frozen soil profiles are developed using nonelevated, conventional-appearing foundation systems. These sites consist of frozen sands and gravels and...

Adjustable Foundation Design Development Innovations in Arctic Engineering
The purpose of adjustable foundation systems is to accommodate a wide variety of soils, including those which have low bearing capacity or which may be subject to settlement and/or horizontal...

Some Case Histories of Pile Foundations in Permafrost
Foundations for permafrost conditions should conform to one of three basic design principles: keep it frozen, let it thaw, or thaw the ground before construction. To keep the permafrost...

Refrigerated Foundations
Refrigeration systems used to cool foundations on frozen ground can be classified as either active or passive, depending on whether external energy is used to power the systems. If pumps,...
