USE OF SOIL-CEMENT IN ROAD CONSTRUCTIONS (IN SPANISH)

THE PAPER SUMMARIZES ROADWORK EXECUTED IN SOIL-CEMENT BY THE ROAD DEPARTMENT OF THE PROVINCE OF BUENOS AIRES. SEPARATE SECTIONS CONSIDER SOIL-CEMENT AS A BASE FOR CONCRETE PAVEMENTS AND FOR FLEXIBLE PAVEMENTS. CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BASE ARE: LOAD TRANSFER TO THE SOIL, REDUCTION OF VOLUME CHANGES, AND AVOIDANCE OF SWELLING EFFECTS. TECHNICAL AND ECONOMICAL REASONS ARE EXPLAINED FOR THE ADOPTION OF SOIL-CEMENT SUBBASES AS A REPLACEMENT OF GRANULAR BASES. CONSTRUCTION METHODS, ESPECIALLY PULVERIZING, SPRINKLING OF SOIL BEFORE ADDING THE CEMENT, DISTRIBUTION OF THE MIX AND COMPACTION OF SOIL-CEMENT ARE OUTLINED. EXISTING PROJECTS AND NUMERICAL VALUES ARE CITED.
