SOIL STABILIZATION WITH CEMENT

THE USE OF SOIL-CEMENT FOR ROADS IS DESCRIBED WITH PARTICULAR ATTENTION TO WORK CARRIED OUT AT THE ROAD RESEARCH LABORATORY, HARMONDSWORTH. ITS APPLICATION TO FRENCH CONDITIONS IS DISCUSSED. IT IS THOUGHT THAT THE USE OF FLY ASH WITH THE CEMENT MIGHT CONSIDERABLY REDUCE STABILIZATION COSTS IN FRANCE. OWING TO THE HIGH COST OF CEMENT, THE USE OF SMALL QUANTITIES OF CEMENT FOR IMPROVING SOIL STRENGTH MAY BE PREFERABLE TO THE LARGER QUANTITIES REQUIRED FOR SOIL-CEMENT. AN APPENDIX DESCRIBES TESTS ON THE USE OF CEMENT FOR STABILIZING CHALK. RESULTS INDICATED THAT ALTHOUGH AN ADDITION OF 250/315 PORTLAND CEMENT GAVE RESULTS SUITABLE FOR ENGLISH CONDITIONS, A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF CEMENT WOULD BE REQUIRED FOR FRANCE.
