AbstractThis translation is the sixth from the Russian permafrost publication "Principles of Geocryology", Part II ( Engineering Geocryology). This translation of Chapter XI by A.I. Dement'ev discusses the particular problems of maintaining structures in permafrost areas. Problems associated with keeping the site in good condition are presented first. This is followed by three sections each considering a particular construction method and associated maintenance requirements. The first is concerned with the construction method used to preserve the permafrost condition in the foundation soils, the second allows the permafrost to thaw, and the third disregards the permafrost because it does not affect the structure. The chapter concludes with instructions for releasing the completed structure to the occupants, and suggestions for long-term observations on performance.
