Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering, held in Duluth, Minnesota, September 27-30, 1998.
This collection contains more than 70 papers that explore many aspects of cold regions infrastructure engineering contributed by authors from around the world. Sections on pavement systems cover the design of asphalt mixtures, selection of materials, spring weakening of roads, pavement performance, seasonal changes in material properties, and local government case studies. Sections on geotechnical issues report on permafrost and frost penetration, geosynthetics, frost heave, lightweight fills and soil stability. Environmental engineering and utilities are addressed in sections concerning wastewater treatment, water resources, pollution control, and utility repair and operations. Snow and ice are discussed on theoretical and practical levels in sections addressing mechanics, formation, and river and harbor operations. The design, materials selection, and operation of structures are presented in four sections pertaining to building design, operations and construction, and concrete durability. Other topics include road construction and maintenance, and transportation planning and design. This proceedings should serve as a reference on the state-of-the-art of cold regions engineering.
