LIME-FLY ASH COMPOSITIONS FOR USE IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

A STUDY HAS BEEN MADE RELATING TO THE USE OF A GROUP OF LIME-FLY ASH COMPOSITIONS IN HIGHWAY BASE CONSTRUCTION. THE USE OF SMALL AMOUNTS OF LIME TOGETHER WITH FLY ASH AND AGGREGATE MATERIALS INCLUDING NEW JERSEY TYPE A-3 SOIL, BOILER SLAG, AND CRUSHED STONE WAS CONSIDERED. BY CAREFULLY CONTROLLING THE PERCENTAGES OF THE INGREDIENTS, COMPOSITIONS HAVE BEEN PRODUCED WHICH DEVELOP HIGH COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AFTER AGING FOR PERIODS OF ONE WEEK OR LONGER. SPECIMENTS SUBJECTED TO WETTING AND DRYING AND FREEZING AND THAWING TESTS INDICATE EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE WHEN OPTIMUM QUANTITIES OF LIME AND FLY ASH ARE EMPLOYED. FIELD TESTS WHICH HAVE BEEN STARTED ON THE COMPOSITIONS DEVELOPED IN THE LABORATORY INDICATE THAT THE USE OF THESE MATERIALS IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE BASE COURSE OF HIGHWAYS MAY GIVE SUPERIOR RESULTS AT LOW COSTS. /AUTHOR/
