VAEGOEVERBYGGNADER STABILISERADE MED MASUGNSSLAGG - EN INVENTERING AV SVENSKA ERFARENHETER (ROAD BASES STABILIZED WITH BLAST FURNACE SLAG - A SURVEY OF SWEDISH EXPERIENCE)
Roads stabilized with granulated blast furnace slag have been built for a few years in Sweden. Most of these roads are relatively short test roads. An investigation has been made in order to gain experience of this technique, which, at present, is not standardized. Data concerning the materials used, the construction procedures, results of measurements, if any, etc. were collected. A survey of the road damage that may have occurred was made. Samples were taken by core drilling, or, in some cases, by means of a concrete saw. The compression strength of the intact cores obtained was determined. In some cases, complementary measurements of the bearing strength (falling-weight deflectometer) during the spring-thaw were also made. The influence of the different factors that have apparently affected the properties of slag-bound materials is discussed on the basis of results from the roads and also on the basis of literature studies. For comparison purposes, some cement-stabilized sections, often situated in the same test road as the slag stabilizations, have been studied. Two roads having granulated slag and two roads having a fine-grained chrome slag with binding properties in the subbase were also included in the investigation.
