Eight papers describe the continuing struggle to overcome frost problems: 1) freezing and heaving of saturated and insaturated soils; 2) predicting unfrozen water contents in frozen soils from surface area measurements; 3) use of the ice-water surface tension concept in engineering practice; 4) chemical additives to reduce frost heave and water accumulation in soils; 5) frost heaving versus depth to water table; 6) influence of freezing rate on frost heaving; 7) frost and sorption effects in argillaceous rocks; 8) pressure-time relationship in laterally stressed frozen granular soils.
