Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering, held in Lincoln, New Hampshire, August 16-19, 1999.
This collection of more than 80 papers presents a state-of-the-art look at cold regions engineering research and its application to real-world problems. These papers represent cold regions engineering research and practice in Canada, China, Finland, Japan, Norway, Russia, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Topics include:
- modernization and upgrade of facilities at the U.S. Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station;
- design and construction problems in frozen ground and permafrost;
- water and wastewater systems, bioremediation, and contaminant analysis in cold regions;
- use of satellite and airborne imagery for detection of oil spills and environmental degradation;
- solutions to problems affecting pavements, railroads, airfields, and snow-covered roads;
- snowmelt, runoff, ice control, and modeling of ice-covered rivers;
- structural and foundation problems;
- tree and power line damage due to freezing rain and ice storms; and
- sea ice forces on structures and the effects of ice on riprap.
