OCCURRENCE AND TESTING FOR DELETERIOUS SALTS IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO CALCRETES

THE TYPES OF SOLUBLE SALTS PRESENT IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS ARE REVIEWED AND IT IS CONCLUDED THAT SODIUM CHLORIDE, SODIUM SULPHATE, SODIUM CARBONATE, MAGNESIUM SULPHATE AND CALCIUM SULPHATE ARE LIKELY TO BE THE DELETERIOUS SALTS MOST COMMONLY ENCOUNTERED. SIMPLE CONDUCTIVITY METHODS ARE SUGGESTED FOR THE ROUTINE CHECKING OF SOILS, CRUSHED ROCKS AND WATERS USED IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION IN ARID AND SEMI-ARID AREAS. /TRRL/
