Abstract: The design of foundations in permafrost areas for large structures involves a knowledge of the thermal and mechanical properties of frozen soil. Recent creep data for frozen soils and ice are reviewed and some secondary (steady) creep relationships are established. A design approach for pile foundations in ice-rich permafrost is proposed and compared with available field case histories. The theory is found to provide reasonable predictions of pile settlements under load. It is suggested that the limitation of…
