STUDY OF SOIL-CEMENT. CEMENT STABILIZATION OF SOIL CONTAINING ORGANIC MATERIALS (IN FRENCH)

RESULTS ARE PRESENTED OF AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE STABILIZATION OF TWO TYPES OF SOIL CONTAINING A SACCHAROSE ADMIXTURE. IN SAND-CEMENT, THE ADMIXTURE WAS MORE HARMFUL WITH PORTLAND CEMENT THAN WITH BLAST-FURNACE CEMENT; IN SILT -CEMENT, THE SACCHAROSE HAD A PERMANENTLY HARMFUL EFFECT; A SMALL ADDITION OF VARIOUS ALKALINE OR ALKALINE-EARTH SALTS CAN RESTORE STRENGTH. SANDS CONTAINING FROM 0 TO 2.1 PER CENT OF NATURAL ORGANIC MATERIALS WERE ALSO STABILIZED. PORTLAND CEMENT IS LESS SENSITIVE TO ORGANIC MATERIALS THAN BLAST-FURNACE CEMENT, AND CAN BE STABILIZED WITH CHEMICAL ADMIXTURES SUCH AS: MAGNESIUM SULFATE, AMMONIUM SULFATE AND CALCIUM CHLORIDE. THE RELATION BETWEEN THE PH VALUE OF FRESH SOIL-CEMENT AND ITS COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH IS VERIFIED USING PORTLAND AND BLAST-FURNACE CEMENT WITH MIXTURES WITH OR WITHOUT THE ADDITION OF FRACTIONS EXTRACTED FROM THE ORGANIC MATERIALS FOUND IN THE TWO TYPES OF SOIL. /LCPC/RRL/
