  A controlling effect for frost heave of stabilized soil with cement-based stabilizer is investigated by means of laboratory tests according to the Japanese standard testing method. A hypothesis is introduced, which is able to explain a non-linearity of the stabilization effect on frost heave of stabilized soil, assuming the roles of ettringite Author: T. Ono, K. Kawabe. Frost susceptibility of soil. Hanover, N.H.: Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, (OCoLC) Material Type: Government publication, National government publication: Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Edwin J Chamberlain; Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (U.S.). to their susceptibility to the frost action phenomena. Keywords: Frost heave, Thaw weakening, Laboratory freezing test, Cold regions. 1 INTRODUCTION Freeze-thaw action occurs in the cold regions of the world. As long as soil is frost- susceptible and temperature is cold enough to freeze the soil moisture, the freeze-thaw action is likely to. frost-susceptibility value {FSV), based primarily on their mm contents {see Figure 1). Minimal pavement structure thicknesses, termed the "frost overlay", are selected from design curves based on the traffic index {TI) and the FSV classifications of the subgrade soils {see Figure 2). The thick­.

on frost heave test presented a new approach for estimating frost susceptibility of soil using segregation potential parameter (SP) determined in the laborator y or the field [ 7,8]. To. Frost-area soil support indices for flexible pavement design. A Summary of frost-susceptibility tests on natural soils - open system nominal load pressure psi. A Summary of supplementary frost-susceptibility tests on natural soils - open system nominal surcharge pressure psi. A Summary of frost-susceptibility tests on. Frost-susceptibility is related to size distribution of soil particles. In general, coarse-grained soils such as sands and gravels do not heave, whereas clays, silts and very fine sands will support the growth of ice lenses even when present in small proportions in coarse soils. The book is divided into 11 chapters: Commonly-measured properties; Grading and plasticity; Density; Permeability, Consolidation and settlement; Shear strength; California bearing ratio; Shrinkage and swelling characteristics; Frost susceptibility; Susceptibility to combustion; and Soil Reviews: 3.

Soil susceptibility to compaction is the probability that soil becomes compacted when exposed to compaction risk. It can be low, medium, high and very high depending on soil properties and a set of external factors like climate, soil use, etc. susceptible (3, 4). In AASHTO pavement design guide [3], the frost susceptibility classification and frost heave rates of different soils that were developed by Kaplan [5] are used to consider frost heave related pavement damage (serviceability loss) in pavement design. the frost susceptibility of soils and road materials GROUND TEMPERATURES MEASURED IN BRITAIN DURING FOUR ABNORMALLY COLD WINTERS SINCE ARE REVIEWED. GENERAL CONCLUSIONS ARE DRAWN RELATING TO THE DEPTH OF FROST PENETRATION AND THE TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS TO WHICH THE SOIL FOUNDATION AND THE VARIOUS LAYERS .
