AbstractOne of the typical features of the frost heaving phenomenon described i the authors' paper is that the total heave rate is essentially constant for any particular overburden pressure and cold side temperature. The fact that a large change in rate of frost penetration occurs after the step change in temperature in the cold side has been imposed indicates that the rate of frost penetration does not have a significant effect on the total heave rate.
