Diffusion and diffuse cementation in lime and cement stabilised clayey soils - studies of plasticity and aggregation

The studies described provide further evidence for the diffusion of lime into unpulverised lumps in coarsely pulverised soil stabilised with lime or cement. The diffused lime produces cementation of all the clay present, but even when strong cementation has been produced the crystallinity of most of the clay is little altered, and even its surface activity is largely unimpaired: yet every particle of clay becomes cemented. This type of cementation is described as diffuse cementation. The studies reported are of plasticity and linear shrinkage characteristics of whole stabilised systems, and of the particle size distributions produced by various disaggregation procedures from samples taken wholly from within unpulverised lumps (a).
