Abstract : A cold room has been constructed at the Frost Effects Laboratory, New England Division, Corps of Engineers, U. S. Army, for the purpose of conducting laboratory studies to determine the effect of various factors influencing ice segregation in soils and to study, in general, the frost phenomena in soils, with the objective of establishing design and evaluation criteria for roads, highways, and airfield runways constructed on frost susceptible soils which are subject to seasonal freezing and thawing.
