RE: Frost Line

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Alexander,

There were some frost-depth studies done for HUD at the Northeast
Regional Climate Center at Cornell University back in 2001 that were
connected to the development of the Frost Protected Shallow Footing
standard and its acceptance in the IBC and IRC. A table relating frost
depth requirements to the Air Freezing Index was generated and proposed
at that time but was set aside so the proponents could concentrate on
getting the FPSF requirements and standard developed and approved.

I think I have an off-topic question to this one.

Don't you guys in USA have any nation-wide standard for such values as
frost line, temperatures, etc.?
We, here, take the frost line value from a building standard on
climatology.
