Abstract:

On certain, so-called easily freezing soils, the frost produces a major change in the structure which, during and after the thaw, brings about a decrease in their mechanical resistance. The report describes the installation which was developed and which makes it possible to subject several samples simultaneously to one and the same freezing process the report justifies the parameters selected in order to describe the behavior of the soils and to establish their classification. The report presents a certain number of results which have already been published, particularly as regards the selection and definition of parameters used in soil classification. Author
