    This report provides an analysis of problems of the design, construction and operation of tailings dumps on permafrost foundations. Analysis of data from engineering surveys, planning documents and features of the operation of tailings dumps provides an opportunity to evaluate the permafrost-geomineralogical features of the foundations of dams.   Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) is the largest high-altitude permafrost zone in the mid-latitudes. Due to the climate warming, permafrost degradation on the QTP has been widely recorded in the past decades. Since it greatly affects the East Asian monsoon, and even the global climate system, it is extremely important to understand permafrost current state, changes and its impacts.

    The Cold Regions Engineering Division (formerly the Technical Council on Cold Regions Engineering (TCCRE)) was established in to assess and report effects of cold regions environments upon engineering design, construction and operations. This chapter focuses on the geotechnical issues associated with the design, construction and operation of pipelines in permafrost terrain. From a geotechnical perspective, pipelines in permafrost face many additional design and operational challenges than do pipelines in non-permafrost terrain.

    Due to the special engineering geology characteristics of permafrost, construction in permafrost regions tends to result in serious permafrost-related engineering problems. Thaw settlement induced by permafrost degradation is the principal challenge for railway construction Cited by: TICOP USPA is involved in editing papers for the Tenth International Conference on Permafrost (TICOP). Ken Hinkel is serving as Editor to coordinate the review of the 86 English-language papers that were submitted in October Of these, the first author is American on 33 (38%) papers. The 17 Associate Editors, representing discipline subtopics, have requested two reviews.

Several cooling methods have been developed and adopted to protect the permafrost layers from degrading, including the use of crushed rocks, ventilation ducts, thermosyphons, sun shades, insulating materials, and by increasing the Author: Tian-fei Hu, Jian-kun Liu, Zhong-hua Hao, Jian Chang.

Generally speaking, the design principles of foundation in permafrost regions include the protecting permafrost from thawing and allowing thawing of permafrost (controlling thaw rate) after completion of foundation, and pre-thawing of permafrost before any by:   Prepared by the Technical Council on Cold Regions Engineering of TCCRE Monograph presents the most current techniques available for the design and construction of foundations on permafrost.

Permafrost is characterized by low temperature, and its thermal stability is key to geohydrological cycles, energy exchange, and climate regulation. Increasing engineering activities, i.e., road construction and operations, are affecting the thermal stability in permafrost regions and have already led to the degradation of permafrost and caused environmental : Chi Zhang, Hong Zhang, Fuqiang Zhao, Jing Sun.

This paper reviews the effectiveness and costs of strategies to improve roadbed stability in permafrost regions, based on a synthesis of literature findings. Roadbeds in permafrost regions experience instability when the embankment loading and its heat absorption properties degrade the permafrost foundation.

Defining permafrost. Extreme cold is a characterizing feature of the North and it results in seasonally and perennially frozen ground. The latter was called “vechnaya merzlota” (“eternal frost” or “ever frozen”) by Sumgin (), which he defined as “any Earth material that remains below 0 °C for at least two years.”This practical definition of the term “permafrost” (a word Cited by:.

Engineering Problems and Construction in Permafrost Regions: Encyclopedia Arctica 2a: Permafrost-Engineering Stefansson, Vilhjalmur, Engineering Problems and Construction in Permafrost Regions.Permafrost is a naturally occurring material that has a temperature below 0°C continuously for 2 or more years (Muller,p.

The presence and dynamic nature of ice-rich permafrost constitutes a distinctive engineering environment (Andersland and Ladanyi, ; Muller, ).Many engineering problems in the Arctic are associated with: (1) changes in the temperature of the upper permafrost; (2) increased depth of seasonal thaw penetration; and (3) progressive thawing and disappearance of by:
