The National Frost Committee of the Finnish Geotechnical Society is engaged in a national research project, "The foundation and pavement structures of roads." The goal is to develop a practical procedure for the frost design of roads in Finland. The program, intended to last six years, has just started and is based on national laboratory and field investigations. It is in contact with the U.S. Strategic Highway Research Program LTPP projects.
