CONSTRUCTION OF EMBANKMENTS USING SOIL WITH AN EXCESSIVE MOISTURE CONTENT TREATED WITH DRYING ADMIXTURES (IN RUSSIAN)

A DESCRIPTION IS GIVEN OF EXPERIMENTAL CONSTRUCTION SITES WHERE EMBANKMENTS, LESS THAN 1M. HIGH, WERE BUILT WITH LOCAL SOIL WHICH HAD AN EXCESSIVE MOISTURE CONTENT, AND HAD BEEN STABILIZED ON THE SITE WITH 2.5 TO 3.5 PER CENT QUICKLIME. RESULTS SHOW THAT THE ADDITION OF 1 PER CENT LIME (OR OF 210 /35 CEMENT) LOWERS THE MOISTURE CONTENT IN SOIL BY ONE TO TWO PER CENT (0.6 TO 1.1 PER CENT IF CEMENT IS USED) WHILE IT INCREASES OPTIMUM COMPACTION BY 0.4 (0.6) PER CENT. SOIL STABILIZATION WITH LIME IS AN EXCELLENT SITE METHOD WHICH FACILITATES THE USE OF CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY ON SOIL PREVIOUSLY UNWORKABLE EVEN WITH TRACKED EQUIPMENT. /LCPC/ RRL/
