MECHANISMS OF STRENGTH FOR FROZEN SAND

Various physical mechanisms controlling the strength of frozen sand are proposed, evaluated and quantified by drawing upon an extensive literature survey, unconfined creep data on frozen sand and frozen saturated wetting and nonwetting glass beads. The principal mechanisms are: Ice strength and strengthening, soil strength, and ice matrix-soil skeleton interaction through dilatancy effects and structural hindrance.
