STABILIZATION OF SOILS WITH LIME, LIME-FLYASH, AND OTHER LIME REACTIVE MATERIALS

DESIRABLE TESTING AND CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES ARE REPORTED TO BE USED FOR CONSTRUCTION OF SUCCESSFUL LIME STABLIZATION PROJECTS. THE REPORT DISCUSSES THE HISTORY OF THE PROCESS, THE COMPOSITION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LIMES USED, AND THE TYPES OF LIME STABLIZATION GENERALLY USED. A BRIEF DISCUSSION OF SOME OF THE CHEMICAL REACTIONS EXPLAINS WHY AND HOW LIME CHANGES PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF SOILS. A PORTION OF THE REPORT PERTAINS TO TESTING OF MIXTURES AND TO INTERPRETATION OF TEST RESULTS. DISCUSSION OF CONSTRUCTION PRACTICE COVERS SUCH SUBJECTS AS APPLICATION OF LIME, MIXING, COMPACTING, CURING, AND REWORKING. RECOMMENDATIONS WITH REGARD TO THESE PRACTICES AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO CRACKING AND PERMANENCE ARE MADE. A NUMBER OF TESTS TO BE MADE SUBSEQUENT TO CONSTRUCTION ARE SUGGESTED AND THE BENEFITS OF LIME AS A STABLIZER AND OF PROPERLY CONSTRUCTED LIME STABILIZED PROJECTS ARE SUMMARIZED. /AUTHOR/
