DETERMINATION OF ATTERBERG LIMITS. REDUCTION OF TIME FOR THE PREPARATION OF MORTAR BY USING A CENTRIFUGAL MACHINE /IN FRENCH/

FOR THE CONTROL OF EARTHWORKS ON A SECTION OF THE A.62-33 MOTORWAY, IT WAS FOUND NECESSARY TO CARRY OUT A STUDY AND CLASSIFICATION OF SOIL BASED ON A RAPID IDENTIFICATION OF THE MATERIALS USED. BECAUSE OF THE DELAY OCCURRING IN PREPARING MORTAR MADE WITH GRAVELLY SOILS (24 HOURS UNDER OPTIMAL CONDITIONS), THE VALUES OF ATTERBERG LIMITS WERE NOT AVAILABLE IN TIME TO CONFIRM THE CLASSIFICATION BASED ON OTHER DATA (GRADING, COLOR, ORIGIN, NATURAL MOISTURE CONTENT). AN ACCELERATED METHOD IS DESCRIBED FOR THE PREPARATION OF MORTAR, WHICH USES A LARGE CAPACITY CENTRIFUGAL MACHINE AND FOLLOWS THE METHOD RECOMMENDED BY L.C.P.C. /LCPC/RRL/
