LIME-STABILIZED SOIL PROPERTIES AND THE BEAM ACTION HYPOTHESIS

THE STABILIZING EFFECTS OF HYDRATED LIME AND CHEMICAL ADDITIVES /SODIUM HYDROXIDE, SODIUM ORTHOSILICATE, AND CALCIUM CHLORIDE/ ON A TEXAS MONTMORILLONITIC CLAYEY SOIL WERE STUDIED AND MEASURED BY MEANS OF COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH, DURABILITY, CONSISTENCY, CONSOLIDATION AND PERMEABILITY TESTS. THE STRENGTH BENEFICATION OBTAINED FROM THE ADDITION OF LIME TO THE SOIL WAS SUBSTANTIAL. ALTHOUGH FURTHER IMPROVEMENT WITH CHEMICAL ADDITIVES WAS MINIMAL FOR STRENGTH AND CONSISTENCY, IT WAS CONSIDERABLE WHEN VIEWED ON THE BASIS OF CONSOLIDATION, DURABILITY, AND PERMEABILITY TEST RESULTS. ALSO, THE MODULUS OF ELASTICITY OF THE LIME-ESTABLISHED SOIL WAS DETERMINED AND COMPARED WITH THAT OF THE SAME SOIL STABILIZED WITH CEMENT. BASED ON WINKLERS MODEL, A HYPOTHESIS WAS ADVANCED TO CALCULATE THE DEFLECTION AND STRESSES IN A STABILIZED SOIL LAYER, WHEREVER SUCH A LAYER IS USED AS A PAVEMENT COMPONENT. /AUTHOR/
