Project Details

Description

Frost susceptibility of hydraulic fill from dredged limestone used for an artificial island at the Øresund Link has been studied and evaluated. The fill acts as bearing layer for a combined rail and motor way. Due to removal of fines in the dredging operations the material has no significant heave caused by frost. It could be classified as not susceptible to frost under the used conditions at the construction site.
