SOIL STABILIZATON - CURRENT USAGE IN AUSTRALIA /IN JAPANESE/

THIS PAPER DEALS WITH THE USAGE OF SOIL STABILIZATON IN AUSTRALIA, A COUNTRY OF PREDOMINANTLY DRY SOIL CONDITIONS. SURVEYS CARRIED OUT ON A NATIONAL SCALE REVEAL THAT THE MAJORITY OF STABILIZATION WORK IS ASSOCIATED WITH ROAD AND AIRFIELD PAVEMENTS, FOR WHICH LIME STABILIZATION OF THE SUBGRADE AND CEMENT STABILIZATION OF THE BASE COURSES ARE THE MOST POPULAR FORMS. BITUMINOUS STABILIZATION IS USUALLY RESTRICTED TO SURFACE COURSES ONLY. MORE RECENTLY, LIME HAS BEEN USED FOR PROTECTION AGAINST WIND AND WATER EROSION, BOTH SUPERFICIALLY AS IN FLOODWAYS AND INTERNALLY AS IN THE CORE OF EARTH DAMS, AS WELL AS IN EXCAVATION WORK AND TRENCH REINSTATEMENT TO ENSURE SAFETY AND PREVENT SUBSIDENCE. A NEW METHOD FOR LATERAL CONSOLIDATION, USING QUICKLIME, IS AT PRESENT BEING TESTED BOTH IN JAPAN AND AUSTRALIA. /CSIRO/
