SOIL-CEMENT-A CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL

The technology of cement-treated materials is summarized. Basic properties of soil-and soil-aggregate-cement mixtures are given to help the reader understand and use the product. The use of soil and cement mixtures as pavement layers is considered. Testing and mix design methods are discussed and approximate cement requirements given. A thickness design procedure is presented. Construction procedures are outlined. Recycling of material with the addition of cement to salvage and strengthen road layers is discussed. It is concluded that cement stabilization can improve the engineering properties of materials and has wide application in pavement layers. In using soil-cement, proper consideration should be given to mix design, thickness design, and construction procedures. /Authors/
