Abstract:

The purpose of the frost investigation was to provide test data and analyses to establish criteria and methods for the design of airfield pavements where conditions are conducive to frost action, both in theaters of operation and in the United States and to establish criteria and methods for the evaluation of airfields pavements where subgrade soils or base courses experience frost action. The purpose of this report is to unify and summarize the results of observations and tests made at various airfields in the U. S. and to present design and evaluation criteria resulting from a study of the accumulated data.
