Cold Regions Engineering
Engineers who plan, design, construct, operate and maintain facilities in cold regions must deal with all the concerns found in the more temperate areas of the world in addition to the...

Influence of Surface Conditions on Surface Temperature
Geotechnical engineers working in areas of discontinuous permafrost are frequently faced with the necessity of designing facilities with a minimum of thermal disturbance. Construction...

Route Thaw Settlement: A Probabilistic Evaluation
A methodology is outlined for assessing potential differential thaw settlement effects on structures due to permafrost degradation along transportation routes in the offshore, nearshore,...

Thaw Settlement as a Result of Permafrost Deterioration
An overview is given of floor and footing failure as a result of deterioration of permafrost. Consideration of causes for the deterioration and methods of repair are addressed in general...

Arctic Foundation Selection: A Decision Matrix
An idealized matrix diagram is presented of the decision making process involved in determing an economic Arctic foundation type that is best suited to the proposed above-grade structure....

A Numerical Model of Subsea Permafrost

On the Origin of Aggradational Ice in Permafrost

Consolidation of Permafrost upon Thawing
Methods of predicting initial consolidation upon thawing and the subsequent consolidation with time under increasing pressures are presented in terms of changes in unit weight. Procedures...

Overview: Introduction to Cold Region Construction
Speaking of cold region construction, it is natural to think only of the arctic, however, this is completely erroneous. Throughout North America there are various types of cold region...

Pile Construction Practices in Arctic Regions: State-of-the-Art
Pile installation techniques in cold regions include drill and slurry, and driven methods for foundation designs. In the past, piles used for structural support in permafrost have consisted...

Quality Assurance for Cold Regions Construction
Quality Assurance for cold regions construction begins at the design stage. Unique civil, structural, material and equipment requirements for the severe arctic environment and continuous/discontinuous...

Thaw Settlement Analysis for Buried Pipelines in Permafrost
This paper focuses on determination of allowable thaw settlement for the design of cross country pipelines in permafrost areas. The purpose of the thaw settlement evaluation is to aid...
