THE STABILIZATION OF LOCAL BASE MATERIALS

EXTENSIVE TESTS USING A NUMBER OF STABILIZATION MATERIALS COMPLETED BETWEEN 1951-1954 WERE PERFORMED ON TWO CHERTS AND TWO BANK GRAVELS. TWO SANDS WERE ALSO USED FOR BLENDING WITH THE OTHER BASE MATERIALS. LIMITED TESTS OF BOILER SLAG AND ASH WERE ALSO INCLUDED, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE ADDITION OF 4% PORTLAND CEMENT, BY WEIGHT, TO ANY OF THE SOILS TESTED GREATLY IMPROVED BOTH LOAD-BEARING CAPACITY AND DURABILITY. THE ADDITION OF SMALLER QUANTITIES OF PORTLAND CEMENT, OR OF EMULSIFIED OR CUT-BACK ASPHALT, WHILE LESS BENEFICIAL, GENERALLY IMPROVED THE PROPERTIES OF THESE MATERIALS.
