CEMENT-STABILIZED MATERIALS FOR ROAD AND AIRFIELD PAVEMENTS

IT IS SUGGESTED THAT CONSIDERABLE ECONOMIC BENEFIT COULD BE DERIVED FROM THE GREATER USE OF STABILIZED SOILS AND INDUSTRIAL WASTE FOR ROAD AND AIRFIELD PAVINGS. AFTER REVIEWING THE HISTORY OF CEMENT-STABILIZED MATERIALS IN SOME OVERSEAS COUNTRIES AND IN THE UNITED KINGDOM, THIS REPORT CONSIDERS HOW CEMENT FUNCTIONS IN STABILIZING COHESIVE AND NONCOHESIVE MATERIALS. THE VARIOUS CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES ARE COMPARED; THE INDICATIONS ARE THAT A WIDER RANGE OF MATERIALS MAY BE TREATED BY IN SITU MIXING THAN BY PREMIXING PLANT, AND THAT MORE UNIFORM STRENGTHS ARE ACHIEVED WHEN MULTI-PASS METHODS ARE USED. AN EXAMPLE OF THE APPLICATION OF OPERATIONAL RESEARCH TO IMPROVE THE PRODUCTIVITY OF MULTI-PASS CONSTRUCTION IS ALSO GIVEN. THE LONG-TERM PERFORMANCE, BOTH IN THIS COUNTRY AND ABROAD, HAS BEEN GOOD, THE MOST COMMON CRITICISM BEING THE FORMATION OF CRACKS THROUGH THIN BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS. A REAPPRAISAL OF THE METHODS OF SPECIFICATION COULD ALLOW GREATER USE OF CEMENT STABILIZATION BENEATH CONCRETE AND FLEXIBLE PAVINGS; THIS COULD LOWER COSTS AND IMPROVE PERFORMANCE.
