Abstract:

The construction standards currently unlimited for planning and production of hydraulic structures on permafrost are explored briefly. The diversity of natural conditions, the poor state of study of their features requires a fairly careful approach to a determination of the possibility of employing permafrost soils as a foundation for a structure with reference to the pressures and nature of structures. It is necessary to formulate special technical conditions for the planning of each building project in the Far North due to the incompleteness of observations presently. The author deals with several possible conditions effecting the building of hydraulic structures. The construction of the Mamakanskaya Hydroelectric plant proved the effectiveness, economy, and engineering feasibility of using precaste ferroconcrete under the conditions of a harsh climate.
