Introduction
Permafrost is defined as soil that remains frozen for more than two years. At elevations less than 304.8 m (1000 ft.), it is frequently encountered north of latitude 60. It may also be...

The Need for Geotechnical Investigation
Knowledge of the subsurface conditions is needed to decide which type of foundation to use. In the discontinuous permafrost zone, some generalizations may be made about the location of...

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...
