CLOSURE ON GROUND FREEZING IN CONSTRUCTION

GOLDER'S REPORT ON A METHOD USED TO SOLVE A FREEZING PROBLEM SHOWS HOW ACCEPTABLE SOLUTIONS CAN BE REACHED IN HEAT CONDUCTION IN SOILS BY THE USE OF BASIC PRINCIPLES AND REASONABLE ASSUMPTIONS. DISCUSSION IS MADE OF SHUSTER'S DISCUSSION, POINTING OUT A DISCREPANCY IN THE COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY FOR SOIL. THE COEFFICIENT OF THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY OF SOILS IS A DIFFICULT PARAMETER TO EVALUATE AND MEASURE. THE PROBLEM OF COST-ESTIMATING IN ARTIFICIAL GROUND FREEZING IS DISCUSSED.
