SOME FACTORS AFFECTING THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF SOIL- CEMENT

AN ACCOUNT IS GIVEN OF RESEARCH CARRIED OUT AT IMPERIAL COLLEGE, LONDON, TO OBTAIN DETAILED INFORMATION ON THE RELATION BETWEEN THE UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF SOIL-CEMENT AND THE CEMENT CONTENT, GRADING AND EFFICIENCY OF COMPACTION. TESTS WERE MADE ON A WIDE RANGE OF SYNTHETIC SOIL MIXTURES CONTAINING VARIOUS PROPORTIONS OF CEMENT AND THE TEST SPECIMENS WERE SUBJECTED TO FOUR DIFFERENT COMPACTIVE EFFORTS. ALL THE SOILS WERE NON-ORGANIC AND THE CEMENT WAS ALL OBTAINED FORM ONE CAREFULLY BLENDED SUPPLY. INFORMATION WAS ALSO OBTAINED ON THE EFFECT OF USING TEST CYLINDERS OF DIFFERENT SIZES BUT WITH A CONSTANT HEIGHT: DIAMETER RATIO. THE INCREASE IN STRENGTH OCCURRING BETWEEN CURING PERIODS OF 7 AND 28 DAYS WAS ALSO STUDIED.
