ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF SOILS--SOIL-CEMENT STABILIZATION

THE MAIN STUDIES UNDERTAKEN WERE: (1) QUANTITY OF CEMENT NEEDED FOR SOIL-CEMENT STABILIZATION, (2) INVESTIGATION OF THE SUITABLE SIZE-GRADING FOR EASILY COMPACTABLE (PLASTIC) SOIL-CEMENT MIX, AND (3) STRENGTH DEVELOPED BY THE DIFFERENT STABILIZERS. SHRINKAGE, PERMEABILITY, DURABILITY AND STRENGTH DATA ARE GIVEN. CHEAP SUBSTITUTES FOR CEMENT WERE INVESTIGATED, SUCH AS BRIQUETS PREPARED WITH 5% CEMENT, 4% LIME WITH 3% MOLASSES, 4% CHALK WITH 2% RESIN AND 3% LIME WITH 6% SODIUM SILICATE, TESTED AFTER 3,7, AND 28 DAYS. SOIL STABILIZED WITH 5% CEMENT MAY BE CONVENIENTLY USED FOR HYDRAULIC CONSTRUCTION.
