Abstract : An outline is given two current theories on the freezing of water in soils. The classification and description, standardized in the United States and Canada, of frozen soils, leads to some laboratory data on the mechanical behavior of frozen soils. The monograph concludes with the application of linear viscoelastic theory to typical field problems. (Author)
