Foundation Design - Areas of Significant Frost Penetration..

a. Selection of foundation type.   Only sufficient discussion of the relationships between foundation conditions and design decisions is given below to indicate the general nature of the problems and solutions...

b. Foundation freeze and thaw and techniques for control.   Detailed guidance for foundation thermal computations and for methods of controlling freeze-and-thaw penetration is presented in TM 5-852-4 and TM 5- 852-6/AFM 88-19, respectively. (1)  Design depth...

c. Control of movement and distortion.   The amount of movement and distortion that may be tolerated in the support structure must be established and the foundation must be designed to meet these criteria...

d. Vibration problems and seismic effects.   (1) Foundations supported on frozen ground may be affected by high stress-type dynamic loadings, such as shock loadings from high-yield explosions, by lower stress pulse-type loadings as from earthquakes or impacts...

e.  Design criteria for various specific engineering features.   In addition to the basic considerations outlined in the preceding paragraphs of this chapter, the design of foundations for frost and permafrost conditions requires application of detailed criteria for specific engineering situations.  Guidance for the design of various specific features, construction consideration, and monitoring of performance of foundation is presented in TM 5-852-4/AFM 88-19.
