A new book on the mechanics of frozen ground – “Foundations in Permafrost” — has been published, by Dr. A.S. Gerasimov. The book is comprised of two parts: “Fundamentals of Frozen Ground Rheology” and “Settlement and Bearing Capacity of Foundations”. The release of third part, “Engineering”, is planned.
The book describes the many problems with ice mechanics. You can purchase the book at the accompanying website. The website also contains a forum where permafrost engineering problems can be discussed, in both English and Russian.
