SUMMARY OF STUDIES OF THE STABILIZATION OF SAND WITH CRUSHED GRANULATED SLAG

SYNTHESE DES ETUDES DE TRAITEMENT DES SABLES AU LAITIER GRANULE ET PREBROYE.

SLAG-SAND IS CURRENTLY USED IN THE PARIS REGION AS A SUBBASE FOR LIGHTLY-TRAFFICKED ROADS AND FOR HEAVILY-TRAFFICKED ROADS. THE TERM SLAG-SAND COVERS IN FACT A MULTITUDE OF MATERIALS WITH PERFORMANCE VARYING FROM 1 TO 10. THIS PAPER DISCUSSES THE MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO OBTAIN FOR SAND STABILIZED WITH GRANULATED SLAG AND WITH CRUSHED SLAG AND IMPROVED BY THE ADDITION OF SAND FILLER. IT APPEARS THAT CERTAIN OF THE STABILIZED SANDS, NOT EXPENSIVE, EASY TO PLACE AND USED AS A ROADBASE CAN BECOME, WITH AN EFFICIENT PROTECTION SYSTEM AGAINST BAD WEATHER AS DESCRIBED IN THIS PAPER, SUBSTITUTE MATERIALS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF PAVEMENTS CARRYING AVERAGE TRAFFIC.
