FINAL SUMMARY REPORT - LIME STABILIZATION OF SOILS FOR HIGHWAY PURPOSES

A BRIEF SUMMARY IS PRESENTED OF THE INFORMATION DEVELOPED DURING THE EIGHT-YEAR DURATION OF THE STUDY. FACTORS AFFECTING LIME REACTIVITY ARE LISTED. THE EFFECTS OF LIME TYPE, LIME PERCENTAGE AND CURING TIME ON UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH ARE DISCUSSED. TRIAXIAL SHEAR STRENGTH, FLEXURAL STRENGTH, FLEXURAL FATIGUE RESPONSE, CBR, SPLIT TENSILE STRENGTH, STRESS-STRAIN RELATIONSHIPS, FREEZE-THAW DURABILITY AND SHRINKAGE CHARACTERISTICS OF LIME-SOIL MIXTURES ARE DISCUSSED. A MIXTURE DESIGN PROCESS AND STRENGTH AND DURABILITY CRITERIA FOR LIME-SOIL MIXTURES ARE PRESENTED. /BPR/
