Computer predictions of thaw beneath gravel embankments on warm permafrost / Susan R. Bigl, Richard L. Berg.

Title: Computer predictions of thaw beneath gravel embankments on warm permafrost / Susan R. Bigl, Richard L. Berg.
Author(s): Bigl, Susan R.
Berg, Richard L.
Date: 1991.
Publisher: New York: American Society of Civil Engineers
In: Cold Regions Engineering. Proceedings of the Sixth International Specialty Conference ... the Sheraton North Country Inn, West Lebanon, NH, February 26-28, 1991. (1991.),
Abstract: Model, which was used to simulate freeze-thaw effects of conditions typical of south-central Alaska, using one-dimensional finite-difference code (FREZID), predicted that gravel embankment can be constructed on ice-rich clay permafrost without generating excessive amounts of thaw settlement. Embankments thicker than 6 m are predicted to contain seasonal thaw penetrations for 10-year period experiencing air temperatures similar to 1976-86 decade. Thinner embankments will require insulative treatments.
