Session description:

It is essential to understand the engineering properties for infrastructure development and maintenance in frozen ground. This session aims to provide a platform for engineers and scientists to present the latest development on the engineering properties of seasonally and permanently frozen ground. We welcome papers dealing with

1) Effective technologies/methods for site characterization and detection of ice-rich/thaw unstable permafrost or ice wedges,

2) Fundamental properties (such as mechanical, thermal, electrical, etc.) of frozen ground and their variation with environmental variables,

3) Modeling of frozen ground and frozen ground-structure interaction,

4) Methods to characterize frost heave and thaw settlement,

5) Other related topics within this theme.
