Description: CRREL Monograph
Abstract: About one-third of the 72 pages of the Monograph outline two current theories on the freezing of water in soils. The classification and description, standardized in the United States and Canada, of frozen soils, leads to some laboratory data on the mechanical behavior of frozen soils. The Monograph concludes with the application of linear viscoelastic theory to typical field problems. Twenty-one illustrations, 7 tables and 64 references are included. NOTE: This is part of the "Cold Regions Science and Engineering" series of monographs published by CRREL
