Abstract:

The temperature regime of dams on permafrost foundations is one of the basic factors which insures normal functioning of the structure. The dams of the catchwork irrigation systems for meadows and water supply under conditions of Central Yakutia generally have heads of 3-5 meters. This report investigates the temperature regime of such dams. Temperature influences of the banks of the valley and heat from the earths interior are investigated. Thermal engineering calculation of the extreme temperature state and time of reaching the extreme temperature state of the body of the dam are also explored. Author
