Abstract: Authority for the investigation reported herein is contained in FY 1953 Instructions and Outline, Military Construction Investigations, Engineering Criteria and Investigations and Studies, Studies of Construction in Areas of Seasonal Frost; Verification of Design Criteria. The investigation was conducted to augment improved techniques, being developed under a concurrent contract, for predicting depths of freeze and thaw in soils and is directed to the application of these techniques to special design problems in both frost and permafrost areas. The study was conducted for the Office, Chief of Engineers, Directorate of Military Construction, Civil Engineering Branch (Mr. T. B. Pringle, Chief), by Dr. Harl P. Aldrich, Jr., and Dr. Henry M. Paynter, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, under a contract awarded by the former Arctic Construction and Frost Effects Laboratory (ACFEL) of the U.S. Army Engineer Division, New England. The functions of ACFEL were transferred to the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (USA CRREL) in 1961. This report was prepared by the Construction Engineering Branch, Mr. E. F. Lobacz, Chief (former Coordinator, ACFEL) as a project of the Experimental Engineering Division, Mr. K. A. Linell, Chief (former Director, ACFEL), USA CRREL. Mr. W. F. Quinn, Research Civil Engineer of the Liaison and Technical Publications Branch, USA CRREL, finalized the contract report for publication. Colonel Dimitri A. Kellogg was Director of the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory during the publication of this report, and Mr. W. K. Boyd was Chief Engineer. USA CRREL is an Army Materiel Command laboratory.
