SOIL STABILIZATION WITH LIME /IN FRENCH/

THE PRINCIPLES OF SOIL STABILIZATION (INCREASE IN SOIL STRENGTH RESULTING FROM AN INCREASE IN COHESION AND INTERNAL FRICTION) ARE DISCUSSED ALONG WITH THE VARIOUS STABILIZATION PROCESSES: MECHANICAL COMPACTION, IMPROVEMENT IN GRADING CURVE BY MIXING SOILS VARYING IN COMPOSITION, AND ADDITION OF CEMENT, TAR, LIME AND VARIOUS CHEMICAL PRODUCTS. LIME IS USED FOR CLAYEY SOIL. IT HAS AN IMMEDIATE EFFECT ON THE DECREASE IN MOISTURE CONTENT AND RAISING OF THE PLASTIC LIMIT, AND LONG-TERM EFFECTS: INCREASE IN STRENGTH AND RESISTANCE TO WATER AND FROST. IMMEDIATE EFFECTS ARE USED AS EMERGENCY IN-SITU TREATMENT (LIME PROPORTIONING 1 TO 3 PER CENT OF THE WEIGHT OF THE SOIL); LONG-TERM EFFECTS ARE USED DURING THE PREPARATION OF STABILIZED LOWER AND UPPER BEARING LAYERS (LIVE PROPORTIONING: 5 TO 10 PER CENT OF THE WEIGHT OF THE SOIL). LIME STABILIZATION IS ALWAYS CARRIED OUT IN-SITU. SOME PROBLEMS MAY OCCUR DURING THE STABILIZATION OF SOIL RICH IN ORGANIC MATTERS. /USS/LCPC/RRL/
