THE PROBLEM IN PREDICTING THE SUITABILITY OF SOILS FOR CEMENTITIOUS STABILIZATION

THE SUITABILITY OF A SOIL FOR STABILIZATION, THE MOST APPROPRIATE STABILIZING AGENT, AND THE QUANTITY OF AGENT ARE DETERMINED BY THE CHEMICAL AND MINERALOGICAL COMPOSITIONS AND TEXTURE OF A SOIL. SOIL CLASSIFICATION BASED UPON PHYSICAL PROPERTIES, COMPOSITIONAL INDICES AND GENETIC RELATIONSHIPS ARE EXAMINED TO DETERMINE THEIR VALUE FOR PREDICTING SUCCESSFUL STABILIZATION. CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES DO NOT CHARACTERIZE SOILS UNIQUELY WITH REGARD TO THEIR RESPONSE TO CEMENTITIOUS STABILIZING AGENTS. THE GROUPING OF SOILS IN AN AREA ACCORDING TO THEIR ORIGINS APPEARS TO BE A PRACTICAL SOLUTION. /LCPC(A)/RRL/
