Abstract:

In the northern regions of the USSR, a group of structures called earth beds are being developed. A compilation of forecasts indicating the variation in permafrost ground under fills and in excavations has rarely been made by calculation until now, because in each case, it is necessary to solve a two- or three-dimensional problem regarding the freeze-thaw cycles in soils. A prediction of the variation in permafrost conditions beneath fills can now be formulated based on the results of interdisciplinary permafrost surveying. This report discusses one of the first attempts at analyzing the influence of cutoff temperatures on the variation in permafrost ground under a fill.
