Abstract: The report documents a study tour of the USSR to determine the current practices in analyzing the thermal regime of embankment dams on permafrost and in application of these practices in designing dams. The results of visits to earth and rockfill dams on permafrost in Siberia are summarized. Discussions with the designers of the dams, and with a construction manager and an operation manager, are recorded. The leading Soviet engineers and scientists specializing in analyais of thermal regime of embankment dams on permafrost were consulted, and the discussions are summarized. Experimental facilities of institutes concerned with this question also were inspected.
