This "current practice sheet" on special concrete is concerned with cement-stabilized materials. An introduction refers to the three types of cement-stabilized materials listed in the DOE Specification for Road and Bridge Works (lean concrete, cement-bound granular materials and soil-cement) and to their applications in this specification and also in road note 29.reference is also made to their use in airfield pavements. Details are then given of lean concrete which include references to the quality and grading of the aggregate the aggregate/cement ratio, the type of mixing the selection of water content, the method of laying, and site control and testing. Similar information is then given for cement-bound granular materials and soil-cement. This includes information on permitted sulphate content,clay (liquid and plastic limits) and minimum 7-day strengths. The main properties of cement-stabilized materials are summarized in a table. The next part of the sheet is concerned with performance and reference is made to work which has been carried out to assess the performance of cement-stabilized materials in roads. The sheet concludes with a breif reference to the future of cement-stabilized materials and the likelihood of increased use in order to conserve good aggregates. /TRRL/
