Abstract:

The authors recommend that the calculation of the strength of a road structure functioning under permafrost conditions be performed in the following sequence Determine the thickness of the thawing soil with preliminary designation of a specific depth of covering Establish the required strength of the structure, proceeding from the tolerable overall SAURSRI method or the elastic MAHI method deformation and load and, Refine by calculation the depth of covering assuring the strength needed.
