Abstract

Stability of constructions in frozen ground is one of the most responsible and important goals in permafrost engineering. To solve this problem pile foundations are used widely, usually with a ventilated crawl Under certain conditions shallow raft foundations on gravel pads have proved to be more suitable. Unfortunately these methods are of fairly high price.
