UTILIZATION OF ASH IN STABILIZED BASE CONSTRUCTION

This paper reviews the state-of-the-art with respect to knowledge of lime-fly ash-aggregate (LFA) and lime-cement-fly ash-aggregate (LCFA) materials. engineering properties, durability, dimensional stability, strength, and stiffness are reviewed as they relate to pavement behavior and performance. LFA and LCFA mixtures have the potential to be high-quality paving materials. They can be used as either base or subbase materials; they do require a wearing surface to protect against the abrasive effects of traffic and against the infiltration of surface water.
