CONSTRUCTION OF SOIL-CEMENT DRAINS

THE TYPE OF SOIL AND THE CEMENT CONTENT TO BE USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF SOIL-CEMENT DRAINS FOR RURAL AND SUBURBAN AREAS HAVE BEEN STUDIED BY SUBJECTING SOIL-CEMENT BLOCKS TO PROLONGED ACTION OF ACIDS AND ALKALIS. RESULTS SHOWED THAT 5% OR MORE OF CEMENT GAVE HIGH RESISTANCE TO THE ACTION OF ACIDS AND ALKALIS (SANDY SOILS BING MORE RESISTANT THAN SILTY SOILS), AND OF SODIUM CHLORIDE AND SODIUM SULFATE SOLUTIONS. AN EXPERIMENTAL DRAIN CONSTRUCTED WITH PRECAST SOIL-CEMENT BLOCKS IN 1952 WAS STILL GIVING EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE AFTER 2-1/2 YEARS.
