Abstract : For solving many questions in engineering practice, i.e. the building and operation of various structures and also for investigating such natural phenomena as frost erosion, shore dynamics, etc., a study of the variations in the physico-mechanical properties of the soils subjected to freeze-thaw cycles has very great significance. The experimental study had the purpose of clarifying the essential tendencies in the variations of certain physico-mechanical properties of soils (resistance to shear and compressibility) under the effect of a freeze-thaw cycle with allowance for the influence of the most significant factors, primarily, of their structure.
