EVALUATION OF SOME ACRYLIC POLYMERS AS SOIL STABILIZERS

A PILOT EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF SOME ACRYLIC POLYMERS WAS UNDERTAKEN. THEIR APPLICABILITY AS STABILIZERS OF SOIL AND SOIL-CEMENT, WITH EMPHASIS ON ECONOMY, WAS DETERMINED. SELECTION OF THE TEST POLYMERS WAS BASED ON THEIR SUITABILITY FOR IN SITU SOIL STABILIZATION. POLYMERS CURRENTLY USED IN FOUR DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES WERE EVALUATED BY COMPRESSION AND FREEZE-THAW TESTS. IN ALL CASES, POLYMERSTABILIZED SOIL AND SOIL-CEMENT SPECIMENS OUTPERFORMED THEIR UNMODIFIED COUNTERPARTS. A POLYMER USED IN THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY PRODUCED THE GREATEST IMPROVEMENT. THE RELATIVE ECONOMY OF THIS POLYMER MADE IT COMPETITIVE WITH OTHER STABILIZING AGENTS. /AUTHOR/
