CEMENT STABILIZATION OF SOILS WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO THE EFFECT OF CURING CONDITIONS ON THEIR COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

RESULTS OF TESTS OF THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF SOIL- CEMENT SPECIMENS CURED FOR 7, 14, 21 AND 28 DAYS BY VARIOUS METHODS (INCLUDING SODIUM SILICATE SOLUTIONS AND CALCIUM CHLORIDE) ARE TABULATED AND GRAPHS DRAWN. THE EFFECT OF AGE ON COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH AND ON LOSS OF MOISTURE CONTENT IS DEMONSTRATED. THE FACT THAT HIGHER MOISTURE CONTENTS IN THE SPECIMEN ALWAYS GAVE LOW VALUES OF STRENGTH FOR ALL METHODS OF CURING INDICATES THE NEED OF PREVENTION OF WATER ABSOR- PTION BY THE STABILIZED BASE EITHER FROM THE TOP OR FROM BELOW.
