Freeze-thaw processes and soil chemistry by Giles M Marion( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review broadly examines the interactions between freeze-thaw processes and soil chemistry, focusing on (1) the effect of solutes on physical properties such as freezing-point depression, unfrozen water and frost heaving, (2) the effect of freeze-thaw cycles and low temperatures on soil chemistry, and (3) modeling of freeze-thaw processes and chemistry. The presence of solutes causes a freezing-point depression, which increases the amount of unfrozen water in soils. Liquid films on soil particles provide the dominant route for the flow of water and associated solutes in frozen soils. In general, salts reduce the hydraulic conductivity and water flow to the freezing front, which reduces frost heaving. Solute exclusion during freezing leads to supersaturated solutions, which promotes the precipitation of secondary minerals in soils. At the watershed level, ionic concentrations in early melt- waters are often 2-9 times higher than snowpack concentrations. Temperature is the dominant factor controlling decomposition rates, with minimal detectable rates occurring at temperatures as low as -10 deg C; both bacteria and fungi are physiologically active at subzero temperatures. Extracellular enzymes are active in soils at temperatures as low as -20 deg C; this activity is thought to occur in unfrozen water on surfaces of soil particles. Nitrogen mineralization is reported at temperatures as low as 1 deg C and is promoted by freeze-thaw cycles. jg

Sealants and cold regions pavement seals : a review by Stephen A Ketcham( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A pavement joint seal prevents the passage of liquids into the pavement base and the intrusion of solids into the joint. The primary mechanical requirements of a pavement seal are that it respond elastically or viscoelastically to any movement of the joint without failure and that it withstand indentation of hard objects like rocks. Because pavement joint movements and seal deformations can be large, elastomeric sealants are often used to form seals. Winter conditions are recognized as the most critical for a seal because of the possibility that failure stresses will be reached as the joint opens to a maximum and the material stiffens in response to the temperature reduction. This report reviews the specific problems and requirements that cold climates create for the performance of elastomeric seals. Emphasis is placed on the material response behavior that can lead to failure of a seal. In an attempt to clarity the mechanics of sealant and seal performance associated with low-temperature pavement applications and to address the issue of low-temperature stiffening That should be a dominant factor in the selection of a sealant, this report presents background information on the formulation and mechanical properties of elastomeric seal materials and the structural behavior of field-molded joint and crack seals.

Roof blisters : cause and cure by C. J Korhonen( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blisters are a major problem of built-up roof membranes. They are caused by voids built into the roof during construction. They develop into the characteristic dome-shaped humps by a breathing action driven by thermal cycling. A small pressure relief vent was patented by CRREL as a cost-effective way to repair blisters. Though these vents cannot prevent blisters from forming, they can lengthen a roof's service life by repairing the blisters before they break. Two demonstration projects were conducted to transfer the blister vent technology to the military community. Most participants in the demonstration projects found the vent easy to use and that it performed as designed. The main objection to the vent was its price. (MM)
