COMPARISON OF QUALITY CRITERIA OF SILTY SAND SOIL-CEMENTS

A STUDY OF SOIL-CEMENT SPECIMENS COMPARED VARIOUS SPECIMENS, PRINCIPALLY THOSE OF THE U. S. AND GREAT BRITAIN IN RATING SOIL-CEMENT ON THE BASIS OF MECHANICAL STRENGTH TESTS AND DURABILITY WHEN EXPOSED TO FREEZING AND IMMERSION. EFFECT OF SIZE AND SHAPE OF SPECIMEN WAS ALSO INVESTIGATED. THE VARIABLES WERE: NATURE AND GRADING OF THE SOIL, CEMENT CONTENT, DEGREE OF COMPACTION, TYPE OF SPECIMEN (PROCTOR, BSS AND PCA SPECIMENS), AND METHOD OF CURING. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT FURTHER STUDIES OF DURABILITY ARE NEEDED AS THE SPECIMENS (WHETHER AMERICAN OR BRITISH) DO NOT LEAD TO CONCORDANT RESULTS. THIS IS TRUE OF IMMERSION TESTS AS WELL AS OF THE FREEZE-THAW TESTS. SOIL-CEMENT COULD FIND WIDE APPLICATION IN BELGIUM.
