Abstract
Doctoral thesis dealing with the construction and design of pile foundations on permafrost. Laboratory creep tests support the use of a simple shear analysis to predict pile creep in permafrost. A wave equation analysis was adapted for frozen soils and the dynamics of pile driving in permafrost were studied.
