Stability of the interphase surface in the freezing of moist ground

  • Yu. S. Daniélyan

It is suggested that the formation of ice layers should be regarded as a consequence of a loss of stability of the motion of the freezing front. The kinetics of the freezing process is investigated and a stability criterion is obtained.
