Performance and Cost-Effectiveness of Thermal Stabilization Techniques Used at the Tasiujaq Airstrip

The Tasiujaq airstrip in Kuujjuaq, Nunavik (Canada) is affected by permafrost degradation. As a result, the runway requires intensive maintenance in order to maintain a good service level. Three

Experimentation of Several Mitigation Methods in Tasiujaq Airport to Minimize the Effects Caused by the Melting of Permafrost

Since the beginning of the 1990s an important increase in the mean annual air temperatures has been recorded in Nunavik, Quebec, Canada. This has lead to the degradation of permafrost, which is

Adaptation Methods for Transportation Infrastructure Built on Degrading Permafrost

Climate warming since the second half of the 20th century has begun to significantly impact infrastructure integrity in permafrost environments and has already resulted in expensive maintenance

Review of Effectiveness and Costs of Strategies to Improve Roadbed Stability in Permafrost Regions

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

Assessment of three mitigation techniques for permafrost protection: Roads and airfields in the Arctic

Kangerlussuaq Airport is located at 67°N and 51°W in the zone of continuous permafrost in western Greenland. Its proximity to the Greenlandic ice sheet results in a dry sub-arctic climate with a mean



Air Convection Embankment for Roadways: Field Experimental Study in Alaska

During 1996—1997, an experimental air convection embankment (ACE) was constructed in Fairbanks, Alaska, using very coarse [1- to 6-in (25- to 150-mm)], poorly graded, crushed rock fill material on

Numerical Analysis of the Critical Height of Railway Embankment in Permafrost Regions of the Tibetan Plateau

In permafrost regions, construction of a railway embankment may alter the original thermal equilibrium on the natural ground surface, resulting in the change of permafrost table under the embankment.

Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer

Completely updated, the seventh edition provides engineers with an in-depth look at the key concepts in the field. It incorporates new discussions on emerging areas of heat transfer, discussing
