THE FROST RESISTANCE OF STABILIZED FINE-GRAINED SOILS /IN GERMAN/

RESULTS ARE PRESENTED OF OVER 3000 LABORATORY FROST TESTS ON LIME-AND CEMENT-STABILIZED CLAYS AND SILTS. IN THESE TESTS PROCTOR CYLINDERS AND STATICALLY COMPACTED SOIL SAMPLES WERE LATERALLY INSULATED AGAINST COLD AND SUBJECTED TO TEMPERATURES OF -24 DEGREES C; CHANGES OF TEMPERATURE, FROST HEAVE, CHANGES IN MOISTURE CONTENT ETC. WERE MEASURED. TWO OF THE MAIN FACTS TO EMERGE ARE THAT STRENGTH INCREASES WITH THE AMOUNT OF CEMENT ADDED, AND THAT LIME ALONE IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO GIVE ADEQUATE FROST PROTECTION. /FG/RRL/
