INVESTIGATION OF THE UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF SOIL-CEMENT MIXTURES

AN INVESTIGATION IS MADE OF THE UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF MIXTURES OF VARIOUS SOILS AND PORTLAND CEMENT, AND OF THE EFFECT OF THE WATER/CEMENT RATIO AND OF WETTING AND DRYING AND FREEZING AND THAWING ON THESE STRENGTHS. TEST WERE CONDUCTED TO STUDY THE EFFECT OF A DISPERSING AGENT (TDA) ON THE DURABILITY AND STRENGTH OF THE SOIL-CEMENT MIXTURES. RESULTS SHOW THAT THE WATER CEMENT RATIO IS NOT SUITABLE AS A CONTROL FOR SOIL- CEMENT MIXTURES IN SANDY LOAM, CLAY LOAM AND SANDY CLAY LOAM IT IS FOUND THAT THE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS HAVE MORE EFFECT ON COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF SOIL-CEMENT MIXTURES THAN ANY OTHER FACTOR. INCREASING THE PERCENTAGE OF CEMENT PRODUCES GREATER INCREASE IN STRENGTH.
