Description: Technical Report
Summary: The Frost Test Area, located at Loring Air Force Base, Limestone, Maine, was constructed for the purpose of conducting field studies to obtain information relative to the magnitude and duration of reduction in pavement supporting capacity, due to frost action, as measured by plate bearing tests. In addition, it was desired to determine the effect of natural field and climatic conditions on frost action and to verify criteria for design and evaluation of pavements for airfields and highways.
