ELECTRICAL HARDENING OF CLAYS ADJACENT TO ALUMINUM FRICTION PILES

THE RESULTS ARE REPORTED OF A SMALL SCALE LABORATORY STUDY DIRECTED TOWARD THE DETERMINATION OF CERTAIN FACTS RELATIVE TO THE L. CASAGRANDE METHOD OF ELECTRO-CHEMICAL STABILIZATION OF SOILS IN THE VICINITY OF ALUMINUM OR ALUMINUM SHEATED FRICTION PILES. THE SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES WERE TO DETERMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CLAY CONTENT OF THE SOILS IN WHICH MODEL PILES WERE DRIVEN, THE MAXIMUM INCREASE IN BEARING CAPACITY OF THE PILES AND THE OPTIMUM AMOUNT OF ELECTRICAL TREATMENT TO PRODUCE MAXIMUM BEARING CAPACITY. AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO STUDY THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE TYPE OF PREDOMINATE CLAY MINERALS IN THE SOIL AND THE ABOVE FACTORS, BUT THE RESULTS OF THIS PART OF THE WORK WERE INCONCLUSIVE. /AUTHOR/
