Artificial ground freezing has been used for over a century to form a temporary support and an impermeable barrier for underground openings and other excavations. Nowadays it can be an efficient barrier to prevent pollution spreading in permeable soils. Depending on circumstances chilled brine or liquid nitrogen is circulated through freeze tubes to form ice walls. This requires a good understanding of the thermal, mechanical and hydraulic properties of frozen and thawed soils. These developments have been reported, discussed and updated at the International Symposia on Ground Freezing since 1978. Ground Freezing 94 contains the Proceedings of the 7th ISGF held in Nancy, October 1994. The volume contains a total of 55 papers on the following topics: Heat and mass transfer, mechanical properties, engineering design, case histories and environmental soil freezing. It also contains the extended summaries of 12 posters.
