CURING OF SOIL-CEMENT BASES

FIELD EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED TO STUDY THE EFFECT OF VARIOUS METHODS OF CURING SOIL-CEMENT BASES ARE DESCRIBED. EXPERIMENTAL SECTIONS WERE PLACED IN EACH OF TWO GENERAL SOIL AREAS. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT WAS TO : (1) DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF PREPARING SURFACES FOR RECEIVING CURING MATERIALS BOTH WITH AND WITHOUT A PRIOR APPLICATION OF WATER, (2) DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT SOILS ON MOISTURE RETENTION IN SOIL-CEMENT MIXES, (3) DETERMINE THE EFFICIENCY OF BITUMINOUS AND OTHER MATERIALS FOR RETAINING MOISTURE IN A SOIL-CEMENT BASE DURING THE CURING PERIOD, AND (4) REVISE THE SPECIFICATION TO BE USED FOR MOISTURE RETENTION MATERIAL, IF THE RESULTS OF THE INVESTIGATION SO INDICATED.
