Abstract:

The PERIMOVE model is capable of simulating moisture and heat transfers within soil profiles. In addition, the simulation of these processes formed the basis for the prediction of the volume changes that moisture redistribution and freezing create within soil profiles and the resulting movement of material and loss of soil strength during freezing and thawing cycles. In order to aid the development and validation of the model a suite of data sources have been identified and assembled. These have enabled model testing at each stage of development. Areas of further work are suggested.
