THE USE OF PLASTICIZERS FOR THE TREATMENT OF THE SOIL-CEMENT SUB-BASE ON THE OMSK-SERBAKUL HIGHWAY /IN RUSSIAN/

AN ATTEMPT AT INCREASING THE COMPACTION OF SOIL-CEMENT WITH A GIVEN MOISTURE CONTENT AND COMPACTION ENERGY, BY THE ADDITION OF LIGNO-SULPHONATE IS DESCRIBED. THE DENSITY AND STRENGTH OF SOIL-CEMENT SAMPLES CONTAINING VARYING PROPORTIONS OF PLASTICIZERS WERE MEASURED BEFORE AND AFTER FREEZING. TEST RESULTS SHOW THAT THE MOISTURE CONTENT GIVING MAXIMUM STRENGTH IS LOWER IN SAMPLES CONTAINING THE PLASTICIZERS AND THAT THIS MAXIMUM STRENGTH IS HIGHER. THIS IMPROVEMENT IN STRENGTH WAS TESTED ON AN EXPERIMENTAL SITE. IN STRETCHES OF ROAD CONTAINING PLASTICIZERS, FEWER SHRINKAGE CRACKS OCCURRED IN WINTER. /LCPC/RRL/
