Summary: This report presents the results of an investigation of the variables which affect the transfer of heat at the air-ground interface. Emphasis is placed on freeze and thaw penetration beneath airfield pavements, although the analyses presented are valid for any ground surface. The investigation demonstrates that certain readily obtainable measurements may be utilized to predict the amounts of heat flow at the ground surface due to various atmospheric phenomena. Methods used to develop charts and diagrams for the convenient programming of a hydraulic analog computer are presented.
