AbstractResults are presented over a wide range of soil textures supporting the linear relation between the logarithm of frost heave rate and the cold-side temperature--overburden pressure ratio proposed by Penner and Ueda. The relation is simple to determine experimentally, permits heave predictions at various other temperature and pressure conditions for engineering purposes, and allows soil frost susceptibility comparisons to be made with the results determined by other laboratories.
