ROLE OF DETRIMENTAL SALTS IN SOIL STABILIZATION WITH AND WITHOUT CEMENT. 3.--EFFECT OF MAGNESIUM IN SULPHATE

THE EFFECT OF MAGNESIUM SULFATE ON THE PROPERTIES OF FOUR SOILS AND CEMENT-SOIL MIXTURES WAS INVESTIGATED. THE VOLUMETRIC SHRINKAGE OF THE CEMENT-SOIL MIXTURES DECREASED WITH INCREASING QUANTITIES OF MAGNESIUM SULFATE AND THERE WAS NO MARKED EXPANSION. COMPRESSIVE STRENGTHS OF THE CEMENT-SOIL MIXTURES, HOWEVER, DECREASED WITH INCREASING QUANTITIES OF MAGNESIUM SULFATE. AT CEMENT CONTENTS OF 5% AND HIGHER, THE RESISTANCE TO WETTING-AND-DRYING WAS NOT AFFECTED DUE TO MAGNESIUM SULFATE CONTENTS OF 1-3%.
