Introduction to cold regions engineering / Dean R. Freitag, Terry McFadden.

Title: Introduction to cold regions engineering / Dean R. Freitag, Terry McFadden.
Author(s): Freitag, Dean R.
McFadden, Terry.
Date: 1997.
Publisher: New York: ASCE Press
Abstract: Introduces principles and practices needed for successful design and construction in cold environments and examines adaptation of engineering specialities and disciplines to requirements of freezing temperatures. Covers soil mechanics, hydraulics, thermodynamics and heat flow in detail. Includes principles of heat transfer; properties of frozen soils; freezing phenomena; roads and airfields; building foundations on permafrost; hydryology and hydraulics; water supply and delivery; sanitary systems and wastewater treatment; control of snow and ice; earthwork and performance of materials in cold regions, equipment and operations, and site selection.
