WAYS TO IMPROVE MACHINERY FOR DEALING WITH THE PERMAFROST IN BUILDING OPERATIONS

PUTI SOVERSENSTVOVANIJA MECHANIZACII RAZRABOTKI MERZLOGO GRUNTA

During construction work on the BAM, the permafrost is dealt with by means of explosives (60 to 65 percent) and static earth crushers (15 percent). The recommended size of the clods of earth is 20 to 22 cm. But experience with explosives has shown that 75 percent of the ground thus shifted has 80 cm clods approximately. As a result, methods to reduce cold size are being sought using new techniques for placing the explosives and by using modern equipment. The author describes the new types of earth-moving machinery to be used over the next 10 to 15 years.
