Abstract:

Calculating ground freezing is of considerable theoretical and practical interest thus, knowledge of the depth of freezing is necessary in solving numerous problems in construction and agriculture, for instance determining depths for laying the foundations of builders, the initial depths for digging drains when carrying out reclamation projects, etc. Therefore, during the last 20 years a number of studies have appeared devoted to this problem. This article gives an analysis of some of the existing methods of calculation in this process only those which at the present time should be recommended for engineering have been selected and the application of each method is indicated. In addition, new computation functions have been derived which should be used in a number of cases associated with a considerable thermal influx from thawed ground.
