Solution of the self-simulating problem of heat and moisture transfer during freezing of disperse soils

  • 23 Accesses


The article presents the construction of the self-simulating solution of the problem of freezing of disperse soils attended by migration of moisture in the melted and the frozen zones. The conditions are determined under which a freezing layer forms between them. A comparison of the theoretical data with the experimental ones shows qualitative coincidence.
