Re: Frost Heave

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Todd:
 
All I´ m able to say is an equation from"Soil Mechanic  II" by Juarez Badillo.
 
The heave of the upper layer of soil caused by the frost action is:
 
He= 0,10 x n x H
 
n:  porosity = e / 1 + e ,      e: void ratio
 
H: frost penetration whitin   the earth
