Thaw Penetration in Frozen Ground Subjected to Hydronic Heating
(Peer reviewed; Journal article; Tidsskriftsartikkel, 2016-09-22)
To facilitate excavation and foundation work in seasonally freezing or permafrost regions, the frozen soil must be thawed, either by natural (solar) thawing, or by artificial thawing where an auxiliary heat source is utilized to accelerate the process. In this paper, the process of rapid thawing of frozen ground subject to hydronic heating is studied. In particular, the performance characteristics ...
