AN ENGINEERING THEORY OF CREEP IN FROZEN SOILS

A MACROANALYTICAL VIEW OF THE PROBLEM OF CREEP OF FROZEN SOILS IS PRESENTED. THE PROPOSED THEORY OF CREEP HAS BEEN DEVELOPED MAINLY WITH THE PURPOSE OF BEING USED AS A BASIS FOR SOLVING A SPECIFIC SOIL ENGINEERING PROBLEM, I.E., THE BEARING CAPACITY OF BURIED FOOTINGS AND ANCHORS. SINCE THE PROBLEM IS ITSELF RATHER COMPLEX, IT HAS BEEN ENDEAVOURED TO PRESENT THE CREEP INFORMATION IN A RELATIVELY SIMPLE MATHEMATICAL FORM. THE THEORY, WHILE USING CERTAIN CONCEPTS AND DATA FROM THE FROZEN SOILS LITERATURE, FOLLOWS MORE CLOSELY THE METHODS USUAL IN CERTAIN ENGINEERING THEORIES OF CREEP OF METALS. /RATAOC/
