Abstract : Two ways of laying pile foundations in permafrost soils are common: sinking piles in steam-thawed ground and sinking piles in boreholes. Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages, relating to specific soil conditions. The article examines one of the possible methods of improving these techniques - using artificial air cooling in the course of construction work. (Author)
