FROST ACTION ON TRANSPORTATION FACILITIES. This Record contains the following papers: Measurement and Prediction of Frost Penetration in Highways, R. A. Chisholm and W. A. Phang; A Device for Evaluation of Thaw Weakening of Frost-Susceptible Soil, G. P. Gifford et al; Change in Soil Structure Due to Freeze-Thaw and Repeated Loading, B. D. Alkire and J. M. Morrison; Fatigue-Based . The book explores frost action in soils from different perspectives, as presented in three parts. The first section presents the fundamentals of frost heave and thaw weakening, the impacts on roads and other structures, and the projected effects of climate change on frost action. Typically, there are three conditions necessary to cause a frost heave: 1. Freezing temperatures 2. Frost susceptible soils 3. Availability of water In the absence of any of these conditions frost heave does not take place. Thus, efforts are being made to mitigate at least one of them in roadway constructions in cold regions. FROST PENETRATION. Frost-Action Research Needs A. lV.
