STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF LIME-FLYASH-AGGREGATE COMPOSITIONS

INFORMATION CONCERNING LIME-FLYASH-AGGREGATES COMPOSITIONS IN REGARD TO THEIR STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OR THEIR LOAD TRANSMISSION CHARACTERISTICS ARE PRESENTED AS MEASURED BY TRIAXIAL AND CBR TESTS. A DISCUSSION IS GIVEN OF THE USE OF THE CBR METHOD FOR DESIGNING LIME-FLYASH-AGGREGATES BASE COURSES FOR HIGHWAYS AND AIRFIELDS. AN EVALUATION OF EXISTING ILLUSTRATIONS IS PRESENTED. ALSO INCLUDED IS A COMPARISON BETWEEN LIME-FLYASH-AGGREGATE COMPOSITIONS AND LIME-SOIL MIXTURES. RESULTS OF THE STUDY CONFIRM THE THEORY THAT LIME, FLYASH, AGGREGATE COMPOSITIONS ARE SUPERIOR BASE COURSES EVEN BEFORE ANY POZZOLANIC SET HAS OCCURRED. IT IS FELT THAT PAVEMENT DESIGNS USING LIME-FLYASH-AGGREGATE CAN BE MADE WITH CONFIDENCE BY THE CBR METHOD.
