AN EXPERIMENTAL ROAD OF CEMENT BOUND MACADAM

AN EXPERIMENTAL ROAD OF CEMENT BOUND MACADAM WAS CONSTRUCTED TO OBTAIN INFORMATION ON MEATERIAL REQUIREMENTS, CONSTRUCTION METHODS AND DATA ON WHICH DESIGNS AND ESTIMATES COULD BE BASED. THE TEST ROAD INCLUDED 81 SECTIONS CONSTRUCTED WITH THREE SIZES OF LIMESTONE, THREE SIZES OF GRAVEL AND ONE SIZE OF SLAG COARSE AGGREGATE. THESE COARSE AGGREGATES WERE PENETRATED WITH GROUT OF DIFFERENT PROPORTIONS BY WEIGHT OF SAND OF VARIOUS COARSENESS WITH VARYING AMOUNTS OF WATER. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR UNIFORM AND FULL PENETRATION OF COARSE AGGREGATES BY THE GROUT WAS STUDIED. COMPACTION METHODS WERE DESCRIBED. COMPACTION METHODS WERE DESCRIBED. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS WERE GIVEN PERTAINING TO SUBGRADE, COARSE AGGREGATE, GROUT, COMPACTION, CONSTRUCTION METHODS, STRENGTHS, AND QUALITY OF MATERIALS.
