STABILIZATION OF FINE-GRAINED SOILS BY ELECTOOSMOTIC AND ELECTROCHEMICAL METHODS

A BRIEF EXPLANATION IS GIVEN OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PROCESSES OF STABILIZATION BY ELECTROOSMOTIC AND ELECTROCHEMICAL MEANS AND THE WORK OF EARLY INVESTIGATORS IS CITED. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE TWO METHODS IS INVESTIGATED BY LABORATORY TESTS ON TWO SOILS. THE FIRST TYPE, A SANDY SILT, WAS INVESTIGATED DURING DEVELOPMENT OF TESTING TECHNIQUES; THE SECOND, A MEDIUM FAT CLAY, WAS INVESTIGATED TO EVALUATE AND CHECK THE TECHNIQUE AND APPARATUS DEVELOPED. TESTS INCLUDED GRAIN-SIZE DISTRIBUTION, PLASTICITY, STANDARD COMPACTION, TRIAXIAL SHEAR, BASE-EXCHANGE CAPACITY, X-RAY DIFFRACTION, MICROSCOPY, AND OTHERS. DATA INCLUDE TIME OF LOWERING OF PHREATIC LINE BY WELL-POINT AND BY ELECTRIC- POTENTIAL METHODS, RELATIVE PERMEABILITY PRIOR TO AND AFTER ELECTROOSMOTIC TREATMENT. EIGHT FIGURES ILLUSTRATE EQUIPMENT AND INDICATE RELATIONSHIPS ESTABLISHED IN THE INVESTIGATION. /AUTHOR/
