STRENGTH PARAMETERS OF CEMENT STABILIZED GRANITIC SOIL BY SOIL CLASSIFICATION

Granitic soil, a residual soil derived from granite and gneiss weathering; is widely distributed in the North and the Peninsula of Thailand. It could be classified as A-1 through A-7 according to the AASHO system. Strength parameters pertaining to road construction, namely, unconfined compressive strength, initial tangent modulus, and CBR, of cement stabilized granitic soil are evaluated according to each soil group; and the probable ranges of their value are shown. Regression equations for all soil groups are included in order to estimate the probable values of strength parameters corresponding to cement content and other physical properties. From the result obtained the strength parameters could be estimated from the regression equations as derived from the specific range of cement content in this study. (Author)
