ANTI-HEAVING CUSHIONS OF GRANULATED SLAG

PROTIVOPUCHINYE PODUSHKI IZ GRANULIROVANNYKH SHALKOV

It is possible to construct anti-heaving (anti-deformational) cushions from nickel granulated materials in the late fall and late spring frosts. With correct design, and taking into consideration the properties of the material and high quality processing, such cushions are an effective and economical means for eliminating heaving. Nickel slag has been used in the construction of a second track on the Serozak-Isakovo railroad run over a 1 m. anti-deformational cushion. Asbestos by-products were used as ballast, and covered as well the basic area's shoulders. These granulated nickel slags have been used more and more widely over the past several years. They are a by-product formed during smelting of nickel ores and quick cooling of the liquified (igneous liquid) metal in granulated regions. The slags can be applied without auxiliary elaboration, enrichment, or fractioning.
