Description: Research Report
Abstract: Two formulations of soil freezing are presented, using a simple frost heaving model. Equations are given for freezing by segregation. A model is suggested to understand the properties of the segregating water layer in freezing by segregation, the adsorbed water around soil particles, the liquid-like layer on the ice surface, and various boundary liquids. The appendices present a literature review, an analysis of energy balance at the freezing front in freezing by segregation, additional equations for freezing by segregation, and technical notations.
