SUMMARY REVIEWS OF SOIL STABILIZATION PROCESSES: SOIL-CEMENT

MOST COARSE-GRAINED SOILS AND MANY FINE-GRANED SOILS WITH CLAY CONTENTS NOT EXCEEDING 35% HAVE BEEN PROCESSED SUCCESSFULLY WITH CEMENT, BUT TO OBTAIN SUITABLE CEMENT STABILIZATION WITH SOILS CONTAINING ORGANIC MATERIAL IS USUALLY DIFFICULT. NORMALLY, FOR A GIVEN SOIL AN INCREASE IN CEMENT CONTENT PRODUCES A BETTER-QUALITY MATERIAL, ALTHOUGH 5-15% CEMENT BY WEIGHT OF DRY SOIL IS USUALLY USED. THE CEMENT CONTENT REQUIRED TO ATTAIN A GIVEN STRENGTH INCREASES WITH INCREASING CLAY CONTENT. THE UNIFORMITY WITH WHICH THE CEMENT IS MIXED WITH THE SOIL IN THE FIELD GREATLY AFFECTS THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIAL. ON THE AVERAGE THE FIELD STRENGTH MAY BE ASSUMED TO BE ABOUT 60% OF THE STRENGTH OBTAINED IN THE LABORATORY FOR THE SAME CEMENT CONTENT.
