Report on frost heave testing of Calgary silty clay: M74-3/83-26E-PDF

"The report summarises measurements of the frost segregation potential of soils from the Calgary test loop made under several conditions of temperature gradient and imposed stress. The SP values, ranging from 40 x 10-5 to 240 x 10-5 mm2/secºC, are used to predict long term heave of the deep buried test section"--Abstract.
