Abstract:

The findings of an exploratory study of the holding capacity of hook anchors in frozen and unfrozen ground are presented. Testing revealed that hook anchors are capable of being driven and retrieved from frozen silt and that their holding capacity was reasonably high in comparison to their size. Hook anchor capacity in the frozen silt at -2C was found to be three times higher than in the unfrozen silt.
