Abstract : The object of this investigation was to review and summarize current cold weather construction specification requirements and practices in relation to soil, concrete, and asphalt utilized in foundations, structures, and pavements of the U. S. Army, Corps of Engineers, state and province highway departments, and other Federal and private agencies engaged in winter construction. The investigation covered only areas of seasonal frost and not areas of permafrost. The data obtained were evaluated and comments are made relative to specification requirements that appear best suited for adoption should changes in the Guide Specifications for Military Construction of the Corps of Engineers appear warranted.
