PRELIMINARY STABILIZATION STUDIES FOR THE DELAWARE DIRT ROAD PROGRAM

A REPORT IS DESCRIBED OF LABORATORY TESTS ON THREE DELAWARE SOILS STABILIZED WITH: PORTLAND CEMENT PLUS SECONDARY ADDITIVES, LIME AND FLY ASH PLUS SECONDARY ADDITIVES AND SEVERAL LESS COMMONLY USED AGENTS. FOR THE SOILS TESTED, PORTLAND CEMENT WITH SECONDARY ADDITIVES APPEARS SUPERIOR TO THE OTHER ADDITIVES STUDIED. SODIUM SULFATE WAS THE MOST EFFECTIVE SECONDARY ADDITIVE WITH CEMENT FOR THE TWO COARSE-TEXTURED SOILS. FOR THE FINE- TEXTURED SOIL NONE OF THE SECONDARY ADDITIVES PRODUCED STRENGTHS HIGHER THAN THAT OBTAINED WITH CEMENT ALONE.
