The results are presented that were derived from short-term strength and creep tests conducted on six saturated fine-grained frozen soils. The short-term strength behavior of the frozen soils was determined by constant strain rate tests, while the long-term deformation behavior was evaluated using creep tests. The test results are analyzed in order to develop temperature-independent relationships. It was found that relationships can be developed between the peak and yield strength and also between the peak and residual strength under various temperature contitions, without temperature being included explicitly in these relationships. These and other study results are discussed.
