SOME PROPERTIES OF RICE HULL ASH

A VISUAL INSPECTION OF SOME TEST AREAS OF LIME STABILIZED RICE HULL ASH SUGGESTED THAT THE MATERIAL CONTAINED A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF ORGANIC MATTER, AND THE TEST AREAS APPEARED TO BE EXTREMELY RESILIENT. SAMPLES OF THE STABILIZED MATERIAL WERE OBTAINED FOR DETERMINATION OF THE ORGANIC CONTENT, AND TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT TO DETERMINE THE EASE WITH WHICH THE RICE HULL COULD BE FULLY BURNT. THIS REPORT DESCRIBES FURTHER TESTS ON A TRIAL EMBANKMENT CONTAINING A NUMBER OF EXPERIMENTAL SECTIONS OF RICE HULL ASH. SAMPLES WERE OBTAINED AND THE MOISTURE CONTENT, LOSS ON IGNITION AND LIME CONTENT WERE MEASURED FOR EACH SAMPLE. THE SPECIFIC GRAVITY OF THE ASH WAS DETERMINED, AND COMPACTION AND STATIC LOADING TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT. MENTION IS MADE OF THE USE OF RICE HULL ASH AS A STABILIZER, LIGHT WEIGHT FILL, AND FILTERING MATERIAL. /TRRL/
