INFLUENCE OF SEEPAGE STREAM ON THE JOINING OF FROZEN SOIL ZONES IN ARTIFICIAL SOIL FREEZING

IN ARTIFICIAL SOIL FREEZING, THE PRESENCE OF A SEEPAGE STREAM DISTURBS THE DEVELOPMENT AND JOINING OF FROZEN SOIL ZONES AROUND THE FREEZING PIPES DUE TO HEAT GAIN FROM THE SEEPAGE STREAM. IN ORDER TO OBTAIN THE MUTUAL QUANTITATIVE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG VELOCITY OF SEEPAGE STREAM, REPRESENTATIVE LENGTH OF FREEZING ZONE, PERMEABILITY COEFFICIENT OF SOIL, TEMPERATURE OF SEEPAGE STREAM AND COOLANT, AND DISTANCE BETWEEN FREEZING PIPES AND RADIUS OF THE PIPE, A THEORETICAL STUDY HAS BEEN PERFORMED. THE STUDY CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS. IN THE FIRST PART, THE AUTHOR HAS INVESTIGATED BY HYDRAULICS THEORY AND DARCY'S LAW HOW TO ESTIMATE THE AMOUNT OF DAM-UP IN FRONT OF THE FROZEN ZONES AS FREEZING OF THE SOIL PROGRESSES. IN THE SECOND PART, THE CRITICAL DAM-UP HEAD, BELOW WHICH IT IS POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE THE JOINING OF FROZEN ZONES UNDER THE PRESENCE OF SEEPAGE STREAM AS INTENSIFIED BY DAM-UP HEAD, IS SOLVED MATHEMATICALLY. /AUTHOR/
