Summary: The report presents the results of the frost investigations at Sioux Falls Airfield, Sioux Falls, South Dakota during the period September 5, 1946 through June 3, 1947, and supplements the results of the investigations conducted during the period from early fall of 1944 through June 1946, and reported on in June 1945 and 1946. The investigation at Sioux Falls included the measurement of pavement heaving caused by frost action, test pits for water content, the observation of subsurface temperatures, frost penetration, and ground water table. The investigation was made on both flexible and rigid type pavements. A similar investigation was made at the Fargo Municipal Airfield, Fargo, North Dakota.
