LIME AND SODIUM SILICATE STABILIZATION OF MONTMORILLONITE CLAY SOIL

THE RESULTS AND INTERPRETATIONS OF A LABORATORY SOIL STABILIZATION INVESTIGATION OF COMBINATION LIME AND SODIUM SILICATE TREATMENTS OF A MONTMORILLONITE-RICH CLAY SOIL ARE PRESENTED. FIVE KINDS OF POWDERED SODIUM SILICATE WERE EVALUATED IN MIXTURES WITH THE SOIL AND A CALCITIC HYDRATED LIME. MIXTURES WITH SODIUM SESQUISILICATE PENTAHYDRATE APPEARED LEAST AFFECTED BY ELAPSED TIME BETWEEN MIXING AND COMPACTION. HENCE THIS SODIUM SILICATE WAS SELECTED FOR STUDIES OF THE EFFECT OF LIME AND SODIUM SILICATE MIX PROPORTIONS ON IMMERSED STRENGTH VERSUS CURING TIME AND ON FREEZE-THAW RESISTANCE. /AUTHOR/
