MIXED TREATMENT OF SOIL DURING ROAD CONSTRUCTION IN THE TYUMEN REGION /IN RUSSIAN/

SAND-CEMENT MIXTURES CONTAINING CLEAN OR SITLY SAND FOUND LOCALLY ABSORB UP TO 20 PERCENT OF WATER RESULTING IN DAMAGE WHEN FROST OCCURS. THIS DEFECT CAN BE CORRECTED BY A TREATMENT OF THE SOIL WITH A MIXTURE OF CEMENT AND PETROLEUM. ABSORPTION DESCREASES, AND THE RESIDUAL STRENGTH AFTER FREEZING-THAWING CYCLES REMAINS HIGH. IF PETROLEUM IS USED, IT IS POSSIBLE TO DECREASE THE PROPORTION OF CEMENT BY 20 TO 30 PERCENT. AN EXAMPLE IS GIVEN OF A SUBBASE, UNDER A CONCRETE SURFACING, CONSTRUCTED ACCORDING TO THIS METHOD. TWO TECHNIQUES WERE USED: IN-SITU MIXING (PETROLEUM IS ADDED FIRST, THEN CEMENT) OR MIXING IN THE MIXING PLANT. /LCPC/RRL/
