RELATION OF STRENGTH TO COMPOSITION AND DENSITY OF LIME- TREATED CLAYEY SOILS

THIS PAPER EXAMINES THE EFFECTS OF DOLOMITIC MONOHYDRATE (TYPE N) AND CALCITIC HYDRATED LIMES, STANDARD AND MODIFIED AASHO DENSITY COMPACTION, AND THE PREDOMINANT TYPE OF CLAY MINERAL IN THE SOIL, ON THE IMMERSED STRENGTHS OF SOIL-LIME MIXTURES. DOLOMITIC LIME WAS FOUND TO GIVE HIGHER STRENGTHS IN MONTMORILLONITE AND ILLITE CLAY SOILS, BUT ONLY TO GIVE HIGHER STRENGTHS TO SOME KAOLINITE CLAY SOILS. THIS TREND HELD AT BOTH COMPACTIVE ENERGIES. MODIFIED DENSITY COMPACTION WAS FOUND TO GIVE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER STRENGTHS THAN STANDARD DENSITY COMPACTION. /AUTHOR/
