GERMAN SOIL STABILIZATION

DURING THE WAR OF 1939-45 THE GERMANS CONSTRUCTED MANY AIRFIELDS BY SOIL-CEMENT STABILIZATION, LOCATED IN ALL THE TERRITORIES WHICH AT ONE TIME WERE UNDER GERMAN CONTROL. THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROCESS IS TRACED AND A DESCRIPTION GIVEN OF THE SITE ORGANIZATION AND PRELIMINARY LABORATORY WORK CARRIED OUT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A RUNWAY. SEVERAL TYPES OF SOIL STABILIZING MACHINES WERE DEVELOPED STARTING FROM THE PRE-WAR AMERICAN IDEAS. THE GERMAN AIR MINISTRY LAID DOWN A SPECIFICATION FOR A MACHINE CAPABLE OF DOING 10,000 SQ. YDS. PER DAY AND THIS WAS SUCCESSFULLY ACHIEVED. THERE IS LITTLE SOIL STABILIZATION USED NOW IN GERMANY FOR RECONSTRUCTION.
