TRANSFER OF HEAVING FORCES BY ADFREEZING TO COLUMNS AND FOUNDATION WALLS IN FROST-SUSCEPTIBLE SOILS

FIELD STUDIES WERE MADE ON UPLIFT FORCES ON SMALL-DIAMETER COLUMNS OF STEEL, CONCRETE, AND WOOD CAUSED BY ADFREEZING IN FROST-SUSCEPTIBLE LEDA CLAY. ADFREEZE STRENGTH VALUES WOULD APPEAR TO BE HIGHEST FOR STEEL AND CONCRETE, FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY WOOD. THE HEAVING PATTERN AND FORCE TRANSMITTED ARE SHOWN TO BE DIFFERENT FOR LONG FOUNDATION WALLS AND FOR ISOLATED COLUMNS. THIS COMPARES FAVORABLY WITH THE DEFORMATION PATTERN INDUCED IN AN ICE COVER AROUND OFF- SHORE STRUCTURES DURING A CHANGE IN WATER LEVEL. ATTENTION IS ALSO GIVEN TO THE RELATIVE MOVEMENT OF THE HEAVING SOIL WITH RESPECT TO THE STRUCTURE ON THE TRANSMISSION OF FORCES. /RATAOC/
