STUDIES ON THERMAL STABILIZATION OF BLACK COTTON SOILS

THE EFFECTIVENESS OF HEAT TREATMENT ON THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF BLACK COTTON SOILS IS EVALUATED. IN ADDITION, A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED ON THE GRAIN-SIZE ALTERATION DUE TO HEAT TREATMENT, AS WELL AS AN EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CEMENT STABILIZATION OF A HEAT-TREATED SOIL. TEMPERATURES SELECTED FOR THE INVESTIGATION RANGED FROM 140 DEGREES TO 800 DEGREES C. HEAT TREATMENT CONSIDERABLY ALTERS THE PHYSICAL PROPERTIES AND BRINGS ABOUT REDUCTION OF THE CLAY-SIZE FRACTION. CEMENT STABILIZATION SEEMS TO BE EFFECTIVE IF THE SOIL IS HEATED TO AROUND 220 DEGREES C. /RRL/A/
