STABILIZATION OF THE ROAD BASE

THREE METHODS CAN BE USED FOR ROADBASE AND AGGREGATE STABILIZATION: (1) MECHANICAL STABILIZATION, (2) LIME STABILIZATION / PRIMARILY FOR CLAY AND SILTY SOILS/, AND (3) STABILIZATION BY BITUMINOUS OR CEMENT TREATMENT. A TEST STRETCH, 4500 FEET LONG WITH 15 DIFFERENT STRUCTURAL DESIGNS OF SURFACE, IS INCORPORATED IN THE E.6 HIGHWAY, NEAR HALMSTAD. AIRFIELDS ARE DESCRIBED BY PLANT MIX PROCEDURES. ON ROADS, HOWEVER, ROAD MIX METHODS WERE USED. SOILS BELONGING TO FROST SENSIBILITY GROUP III HAVE BEEN STABILIZED WITH 1 TO 2 PER CENT OF LIME AND 4 TO 6 PER CENT OF CEMENT TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BOTTOM LAYER OF THE BASE. DETAILS ARE SHOWN IN THE ILLUSTRATION. IN SWEDEN SOILS ARE CLASSIFIED IN THREE FROST HEAVING SENSIBILITY GROUPS, I-III. /SVI/RRL/
