SELECTION OF STABILISING AGENTS FOR CONSTRUCTION AND REHABILITATION OF COUNCIL ROADS. FIFTH NATIONAL LOCAL GOVERNMENT ENGINEERING CONFERENCE, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 24-29 SEPTEMBER, 1989

There are now available a range of stabilisation additives increasing the types of soils that can be economically utilised in road construction, and expanding the modes of construction. By considering these options road engineers have the opportunity to choose the additive best suited to their needs. Superior results and the most economical construction will be achieved by using purpose built equipment. The development of special cement/flyash blends, the use of retarders, the use of the Consolid stabilisation system, and some bitumen mixes can extend to various degrees the time dependency of stabilised mixtures. This opens up wider applications for stabilisation and long term stockpiling of mixed product. Possibly a future exists for a blended product of cement, lime and flyash, providing the benefits of lime on the plastic fines along with the workability and long term strength of cement and flyash.
