Masters thesis. Examines significant aspects of hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry, and evidence of groundwater flow as basis for understanding groundwater distribution and development in permafrost regions. Engineering considerations on development of groundwater resources and prevention of icings...
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...
Masters thesis resulting from an experimental study to determine the freezing behavior of Ottawa sand and a locally occurring silt. Results indicated that freezing behaviour of a soil can be predicted by short term freezing tests in which heave and net change in sample porewater volume or...
