IN-SITU EXPERIMENTS ON SOFT CLAY BANKING BY MEANS OF MULTIPLE-SANDWICH METHOD USING CARDBOARD WICKS AND QUICKLIME

IN-SITU EXPERIMENTS ON THE NEW METHOD OF CONSTRUCTING EMBANKMENTS BY MEANS OF MULTIPLE-SANDWICH USING CARDBOARD AND QUICKLIME WERE UNDERTAKEN IN THE FIELD. TESTS WERE MADE WITH FOUR KINDS OF METHODS USING CARDBOARD WITHOUT QUICKLIME IN ONE SECTION AND CARDBOARD WITH QUICKLIME IN THE OTHER THREE SECTIONS. OF THE FOUR KINDS OF SANDWICH METHODS, THE METHOD WHICH USES ORDINARY CARRUGATED CARDBOARD AND A QUICKLIME LAYER OF SOME WIDTH LAID TRANSVERSELY ACROSS THE BANK WAS NOT ONLY MOST ECONOMICAL BUT ALSO FAIRLY EFFECTIVE, BECAUSE IT STOOD UP TO REPEATED LIGHT TRAFFIC LOADS ON THE TOP SURFACE. THIS METHOD PROVED TO BE ALSO EFFECTIVE IN PREVENTING SEEPAGE AT A RIVER DIKE AT THE TIME OF INUNDATION. /TRRL/
