Abstract : In conformity with the principle of the equilibrium state of water in frozen soils, the amount of unfrozen water in them depends directly on the external conditions, e.g. on the external pressure on the frozen ground. The author conducted experimental studies, their purpose being to determine the phase composition of water in frozen soils under load, and the establishment of the dependence of unfrozen water content on value of effective pressure. A calorimetric method was used.
