LONG-TIME EFFECTS OF WATER ON THE MECHANICAL STRENGTH OF SOIL-CEMENT MIXES

THE WATER CONTENT OF SOIL-CEMENT MIXES, WHICH IS NOT CHEMICALLY BOUND BUT ALSO NOT FLOWING IN THE SYSTEM AFTER SETTING, UNDER THE CONDITIONS OF ABSENCE OF FROST IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT FOR THE DURABILITY OF MORTARS PRESSED UNDER A LOAD OF 30 KG/SQ CM MAINTAINED FOR 5 MINUTES. SAMPLES WITH 12% CEMENT AND LESS, CURED UNDER WATER FOR 2.5 YEARS, USUALLY HAD UNSATISFACTORY MECHANICAL STRENGTH OR EVEN DISINTEGRATED SPONTANEOUSLY. ONLY SAMPLES MADE WITH GRAY SOIL BEHAVED SOMEWHAT BETTER. MIXES CONTAINING 12 TO 24% PORTLAND CEMENT HAD GOOD STRENGTH IF CURED UNDER THE SAME CONDITIONS AND IF NEVER DRIED IN THE OPEN AIR.
