DESIGN AND OPERATION OF PLANTS FOR PRODUCING STABILIZED SOIL-BOUND ROAD MATERIAL

PLANT-PRODUCED STABILIZED MIXTURES ARE FAVORED BY HIGHWAY ENGINEERS BECAUSE THEY ALLOW FOR ECONOMY IN THE USE OF MAINTENANCE EQUIPMENT, TIME SAVINGS, AND MORE UNIFORM PRODUCT COMPOSITION; AND BY PRODUCERS BECAUSE ACCUMULATED AGGREGATES AND SAND OR CLAY WASTES CAN BE UTILIZED. ESSENTIAL OPERATIONS OF THE PLANT INCLUDE THOROUGH MIXING OF THE INGREDIENTS AND COVERING OF THE AGGREGATE PARTICLES WITH THE BINDER SOIL TO WHICH MOISTURE RETAINING CHEMICALS ARE ADDED. PRELIMINARY TREATMENT OF THE BINDER SOIL IS OFTEN ADVISABLE TO MAKE IT COAT THE COARSER AGGREGATE PARTICLES MORE THOROUGHLY DURING MIXING. /AUTHOR/
