The Deformation Properties of Warm Underocean Permafrost
Two quasi-conventional incremental pressuremeter tests were carried out on man-made specimens of 'warm' ( minus 3 degree C) frozen, saturated sand. Instead of...

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...

Standards for Pile Load Tests in Permafrost
A requirement exists to establish standard procedures for conducting pile load tests in permanently frozen soils. The methods outlined in the ASTM Standards for piles in thawed soils do...

Attenuating Creep of Piles in Frozen Soils
Results of several long-term creep tests of piles in frozen soils are analyzed; the primary or attenuating creep is predominant in most cases. For effective design of pile foundations...

Creep of a Strip Footing on Ice-Rich Permafrost
Creep settlement tests were performed on a strip footing founded on the surface of ice-rich aeolian silt permafrost. The tests consisted of applying four step loadings to a 10 in. (25....

A Numerical Model of Subsea Permafrost

On the Origin of Aggradational Ice in Permafrost

Foundations in Permafrost and Seasonal Frost
The papers in this volume cover the following subject areas: A method that utilizes a decision matrix diagram for selecting the most suitable and economical foundations for construction...

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....

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...
