Geotechnical Asset Mngmt through Thermal Modeling - Dalton Highway

The revised scope of this project is to leverage one upcoming reconstruction project on the Dalton Highway to design thermally stable embankments with thermal monitoring instrumentation to study performance of Air Convection Embankment (ACE). Determine site-specific thermal model n-factors for future thermal modeling, and develop relationship between snow depth and winter n-factors. This includes purchasing thermal modeling software, installation of Temperature Acquisition Cables (TACs) and sensors, associated data collection, and reporting.
