On the physical model of frozen soil

  • Anatoly D. Frolov (a1)

Abstract

In this paper we discuss a physical model of frozen soil based on the systems approach and reflect contemporary knowledge about the constitution, structure and properties of this complicated medium. The component composition and specific spatial cryogenic coagulant-crystalline structure as well as physical subsystems of frozen soil conditioning its physical properties are considered. Examples of the use of a model for better comprehension and explanation of some electrical and mechanical property changes of sandy-clayey frozen soils are presented and discussed. The proposed model and its hierarchy is a useful tool for planning experiments and interpreting their results.
