CALCULATION OF THE THICKNESS OF A HEAT-INSULATION PROTECTION FROM FOAM PLASTIC

RASCHET TOLSHCHINY TEPLOIZOLIRUIUSHCHEI ZASHCHITY IZ PENOPLASTOV

Generally defined are the necessary layers of the covering and the necessary relationship of the gaps to the areas of the slabs which ensure the depth of the soil freezing beneath the covering up to a given size (taking into consideration not permitting freezing below the covering). In table 1 are set out the basic calculation characteristics of the constructional foam plastics having limits of stability to a pressure of not less than 3 kilograms of force per square centimeter, which can be successfully utilized in the capacity of anti-heaving heat-insulating means. Table 2 lays out analogous characteristics of several ballasts and soils. The volume weight, thermal conductivity, and volume thermal capacity in foam plastics is many times smaller than in thawed and frozen ballasts and soils. Table 3 provides technical indications for the relationship of the freezing depth of anti-heaving material to the freezing depth of the soil which is located above the level of the soil waters. Table 4 shows the results of calculations for two test sections.
