SOME THERMODYNAMIC RELATIONSHIPS FOR SOILS AT OR BELOW THE FREEZING POINT EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE ON UNFROZEN SOIL WATER

THERMODYNAMIC METHODS ARE PRESENTED FOR CALCULATING, FROM THE WATER ADSORPTION ISOTHERMS, THE CHANGE IN UNFROZEN WATER CONTENT OF A PARTIALLY FROZEN SOIL WITH TEMPERATURE AT A CONSTANT PRESSURE OR WITH PRESSURE AT A CONSTANT TEMPERATURE. THEN, USING PERTINENT EXPERIMENTAL DATA FOR NA- WYOMING BENTONITE, THE INCREASE IN UNFROZEN WATER CAUSED BY A CONFINING PRESSURE OF 100 ATM IS OBTAINED AS A FUNCTION OF TEMPERATURE. SUCH INFORMATION IS SHOWN TO BE RELEVANT TO THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF FROZEN SOILS UNDER STRESS. /AUTHOR/
