THE EFFECT OF PULVERIZATION ON THE QUALITY OF CLAY-CEMENT

A LABORATORY INVESTIGATION TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF THE DEGREE OF PULVERIZATION (SIZE OF AGGREGATION) ON THE QUALITY OF A HEAVY CLAY SOIL STABILIZED WITH PORTLAND CEMENT IS DESCRIBED. AGGREGATIONS RANGING IN SIZE FROM ABOUT 0.1 TO 5 MM WERE SIMULATED ARTIFICALLY. THE RESULTS SHOW THAT: (1) THE STRENGTH OF CLAY-CEMENT INCREASES LINEARLY WITH INCREASE IN CEMENT CONTENT, (2) THE STRENGTH OF CLAY-CEMENT DECREASES WITH INCREASE IN AGGREGATION SIZE, AND (3) THE CLAY-CEMENT SPECIMENS REMAIN INTACT IN THE PRESENCE OF WATER EXCEPT FOR THOSE MADE WITH 3/16 IN. (EQUALS 5 MM) AGGREGATIONS.
