Bed design for a building constructed with local freezing of soils

  • E. S. Maksimenko
Construction on Permafrost


A procedure is described for the analytical bed design of a building constructed with the freezing of soils directly on foundations with thermosiphons. The condition whereby the combination of resisting forces is not exceeded by the heaving forces is analyzed as a stability condition.
