A RAPID METHOD FOR SOIL-CEMENT MIX DESIGN: LOUISIANA SLOPE VALUE METHOD

A LABORATORY DESIGN METHOD IS DEVELOPED TO REDUCE THE TESTING TIME FOR DETERMINATION OF MINIMUM CEMENT CONTENT FOR USE IN SOIL-CEMENT PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION. THIS METHOD MAKES MAXIMUM USE OF AASHO PROCEDURES FOR WET-DRY TESTING AND THE PCA WEIGHT LOSS CRITERIA AND IS BASED ON AN APPARENT RELATIONSHIP OBSERVED BETWEEN THE DURABILITY OF SOIL-CEMENT MIXTURES AT SELECTED CEMENT CONTENTS AND THE SLOPE OF THE UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH LINE AT IDENTICAL CEMENT CONTENTS. THE LOUISIANA SLOPE VALUE METHOD HAS BEEN EXTENSIVELY TESTED AND COMPARED AGAINST THE WET-DRY TEST METHOD. 92 PERCENT OF ALL CEMENT CONTENTS RECOMMENDED WERE WITHIN, | LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT HIGHWAYS
