Conclusions

Frozen clayey soils of semi-hard and hard consistency and sandy soils of medium density have a structural strength equal to the value of the actual pressure under complete saturation, and, consequently, the suspending effect of water, and their deformation is determined by the presence of ice striations and the extent to which the macropores that form after their complete thawing are interconnected.
