Series: Technical Council on Cold Regions Engineering monograph.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Presents the most current techniques used to design and construct foundations on permafrost. Failure to understand the complexity of technical issues involved in building under these extreme conditions can start with the settlement or jacking of the soils, and result in conditions ranging from sloping buildings to swayback roofs to complete structural collapse. This monograph includes eight chapters, which present  Read more...
