DEFORMATION OF ELLUVIAL COARSE DETRITAL SOILS DURING FREEZING

FIELD INVESTIGATIONS ARE MADE OF FROST HEAVE IN ELUVIAL COARSE DETRITAL SOILS. WHEN SOIL IS FROZEN WITH GROUNDWATER LEVEL NEAR THE SURFACE THE COEFFICIENT OF HEAVE VARIES FROM 2.2 TO 5.3 PERCENT. THE DISTRIBUTION OF HEAVE IS NONUNIFORM IN PLAN AND IN DEPTH. EXTERNAL LOAD TRANSMITTED TO AN ELUVIAL COARSE DETRITAL BASE HAS A MARKED INFLUENCE ON THE FREEZING CONDITIONS AND FROST HEAVE; FOR EXAMPLE, A PRESSURE OF /KG/CM 2 ON THE FOOT DELAYS HEAVE ABOUT 15 DAYS. THE INFLUENCE OF EXTERNAL LOAD IS MAINLY MANIFESTED IN THE UPPER LAYER. /AUTHOR/
