STABILIZATION OF DISINTEGRATED GRANITE FOR BASE COURSES OF HIGHWAYS EXPOSED TO SEVERE FROST CONDIDTIONS

A DESCRIPTION IS PROVIDED OF HOW MATERIALS SUSCEPTIBLE TO FROST HEAVE WERE STABILIZED FOR BASE COURSES OF ROADS. IMPORTANCE IS ATTACHED TO MAKING LABORATORY TESTS BEFORE STARTING THE FIELD WORK AND OF CONDUCTING FREEZING TESTS. BY ADDING ONLY A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF STABILIZING AGENTS, SUCH AS PORTLAND CEMENT, TAR OR SULFITE SOLUTION, IT IS POSSIBLE TO REDUCE THE FROST HEAVE OF THE MATERIAL CONSIDERABLY OR TO RENDER IT COMPLETELY FROSTPROOF. THE CONSTRUCTION METHODS ARE DESCRIBED IN DETAIL.
