FACTORS INFLUENCING THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF SOIL-CEMENT

THE CONCLUSIONS ARE: (1) FOR GENERAL SOIL-CEMENT PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION THE MOST EFFECTIVE MOISTURE CONTENT IS APPROXIMATELY EQUAL TO OR SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE OPTIMUM MOISTURE CONTENT INDICATED BY ASTM METHOD D558-44, (2) FOR SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION WHERE HEAVY COMPACTIVE EFFORT IS AVAILABLE, THE QUALITY OF SOIL-CEMENT MAY BE IMPROVED BY LOWERING THE MOISTURE CONTENT AND GREATLY INCREASING THE DENSITY, (3) LONG PERIODS OF DAMP MIXING TEND TO IMPAIR THE QUALITY OF SOIL-CEMENT, AND (4) THE QUALITY OF SILTY CLAYEY SOIL-CEMENT MIXTURES IS HIGHEST WHEN 100% OF THE SOIL IS PULVERIZED TO PASS A NO. 4 SIEVE. COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AND RESISTANCE TO WETTING AND DRYING AND FREEZING AND THAWING INCREASE WITH CEMENT CONTENT. TYPE III AND IA CEMENTS WERE ALSO TESTED.
