EFFECT OF INORGANIC CHEMICALS ON THE CONSISTENCY PROPERTIES OF AN EXPANSIVE SOIL SAMPLE

CONSISTENCY PROPERTIES OF A SOIL TO A CERTAIN EXTENT INDICATE THE BEHAVIOR OF THE SOIL FOR ENGINEERING CONSTRUCTION. THE RESULTS ARE REPORTED OF THE EFFECT OF 20 INORGANIC CHEMICALS IN VARYING AMOUNTS ON THE CONSISTENCY PROPERTIES OF AN EXPANSIVE SOIL SAMPLE FROM POONA. CERTAIN SOLUBLE AND INSOLUBLE HYDROXIDES MAKE THE SOIL FRIABLE. POTASSIUM CHLORIDE AND SODIUM CHLORIDE ARE ALSO FOUND EFFECTIVE IN IMPROVING THE SHRINKAGE CHARACTERISTIC OF THE SOIL. FERROUS CHLORIDE AND AMMONIUM HYPOPHOSPHATE MAKE THE SOIL MASS POROUS. /AUTHOR/
