STABILIZATION STUDIES: TURKISH SOILS

THIS REPORT SUMMARIZES THE RESULTS OF A STUDY TO DETERMINE THE PHYSICOCHEMICAL AND STRENGTH PROPERTIES OF THREE TURKISH SOILS AND TO DETERMINE METHODS OF IMPROVING THESE PROPERTIES. LIME AND CEMENT OBTAINED LOCALLY WERE USED AS STABILIZATION AGENTS FOR TWO SOILS AND U. S. LIME AND TURKISH CEMENT FOR THE THIRD. SOIL #1 (FROM USKUMRO) WAS STABILIZED WITH LIME, BUT NO STRENGTH INCREASE WAS OBTAINED WITH THE ADDITION OF CEMENT. SOIL #2 (FROM UMRANIYE) SHOWED NO REACTION WITH LIME, BUT DEMONSTRATED A CONSIDERABLE STRENGTH INCREASE WITH THE ADDITION OF CEMENT. SOIL #3 (FROM INCIRLICK) IS REACTIVE WITH BOTH LIME AND CEMENT AND COULD BE EFFECTIVELY STABILIZED BY BOTH. /AUTHOR/
