AbstractThe Fourth International Symposium on Ground Freezing was held at the Keio Plaza Hotel, Sapporo, Japan from August 5–7, 1985. The Symposium was organized by a National Committee under the chairmanship of Dr. S. Kinosita, Director of the Institute of Low Temperature Science, Hokkaido University. Two hundred and nine participants from 13 countries presented 107 papers that were reviewed and prepared into two proceedings volumes. Volume 1 was published by A.A. Balkema Publishers and Volume 2 was published by the Hokkaido University Press.The Symposium was divided into four main sessions: 1.I Thermal Properties and Processes (20 papers);2.II Frost Action (24 papers);3.III Mechanical Properties and Processes (31 papers);4.IV Engineering Design and Case Histories (32 papers).Achievements in the understanding and use of artificial Ground freezing can be seen in the increasing number of projects utilizing this technique to manage difficult problems in Ground engineering. These symposia permit the sharing of experience, leading toward innovative and economical designs. The proceedings provide an excellent record of advances in basic knowledge to improve the state-of-the-art in artificial Ground freezing.
