Water content (saturation degree ϭ 90%) . . . . . , 100-year mean return period AFI, no ground cover, and so on). These soil characteristics were used to determine foundation insulation requirements in Appendix A. 2°F (Ϫ1°C). Foundation insulation requirements have been shown to be relatively insensitive to variations in soil condition within the range of frost-susceptible soil types and moisture contents (Adamson, et al, 1973; Torgerson, 1975). This simplification has worked well in practice and in full-scale verification studies (NAHB Research Center, 1994a).
