LIME-STABILIZED SOIL AS A ROADBASE IN LOW-COST ROAD STRUCTURES /IN GERMAN/

OBSERVATIONS HAVE SHOWN THAT, WHEN TRAFFICKED BY VEHICLES HAVING WHEEL LOADS NOT EXCEEDING 2.8 METRIC TONS, THE BASES DO NOT DEFORM SUFFICIENTLY TO CAUSE THE ROAD TO FAIL. WHERE THERE ARE LIVE LOADS IN EXCESS OF 4 METRIC TONS, THE CONSTRUCTION OF 2-COURSE, 24 CM THICK LIME- STABILIZED BASES TOPPED BY A 7 CM THICK IMPREGNATED OR MACADAM LAYER IS RECOMMENDED. THIS TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION IS NOT PRACTICABLE WHEN THERE IS AN EXCESS OF WATER IN SILTY SOILS, WHICH CANNOT BE ELIMINATED, AND WHICH RESULTS IN THE DETRIMENTAL ACTION OF PUMPING. /RRL/
