Abstract:

The present investigations were aimed at studying the deformality of clay soils under the influence of repeated freezing and thawing. This was done to provide an allowance for their deformations in the limiting state for foundation base calculations when the foundations are laid in a seasonal freezing zone. The laboratory experiments were conducted with loess loam from the blanket sediment of the town of Tomsk and pastes of abraded argillite and clay fractions isolated from the loams by elutriation.
