MOVEMENT OF CALCIUM CHLORIDE AND SODIUM CHLORIDE IN SOIL

THE MOVEMENT OF CALCIUM CHLORIDE AND SODIUM CHLORIDE IN VARIOUS SOILS IS STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE PRACTICABILITY OF TREATING SUBGRADES WITH THEM TO REDUCE OR ELIMINATE FROST HEAVE. VARIABLES FOUND TO INFLUENCE THE MOVEMENT OF WATER-SOLUBLE CHEMICALS IN SOIL INCLUDE EVAPORTATION, SOIL TEXTURE, PERCOLATING WATER, SOIL COVER, AND TEMPERATURE. INCREASED EFFECTIVENESS IN REDUCING HEAVING RESULTED FROM INCREASES IN THE AMOUNT OF CHEMICAL ADDED, UP TO A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE ABOVE WHICH NO HEAVING TOOK PLACE. /AUTHOR/
