POSSIBILITIES OF WINTER EARTHWORKS CONSTRUCTION

MOEGLICHKEITEN DES WINTERBAUES IM ERDBAU

WHEREAS IN HIGH-RISE AND ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTION ATTEMPTS ARE MADE TO CARRY OUT WORK DURING WINTER WEATHER BY MEANS OF SPECIAL WINTER PROCEDURES, EARTHWORKS ARE USUALLY INTERRUPTED DURING TIMES OF FROST. BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMIC LOSSES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS, IT SEEMS TO BE A MATTER OF URGENCY TO FIND WAYS OF CONTINUING EARTHWORKS IN WINTER. THIS IS NOT ONLY A TECHNICAL, LEGAL OR MEDICAL QUESTION, BUT ALSO A QUESTION OF THE QUALITY OF EARTHWORKS WHICH CAN BE ACHIEVED IN WINTER. FOLLOWING A DETAILED EVALUATION OF THE LITERATURE, A PROPOSAL IS TO BE MADE FOR FURTHER SCIENTIFIC WORK IN THIS AREA. THE MAIN POINTS TO BE CONSIDERED ARE THE QUALITY REQUIREMENTS OF EARTHWORKS UNDER THE ACTION OF FROST A DISTINCTION BEING MADE BETWEEN VARIOUS SOIL TYPES. IF THIS PRELIMINARY STUDY RESULTS IN PRACTICAL PRINCIPLES, THESE SHOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR THE NEW VERSION OF THE "ADDITIONAL TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS FOR EARTHWORKS".
