A detailed description is given of tests devised to determine the effect of excess moisture and mixing time on the resilience of soil-cement for base construction. A standard triaxial machine and other common laboratory equipment were used in the tests. Experimental results showing that properly drained soil-cement bases, designed to Obi's minimum critical strength and limiting resilience, attain a saturation moisture content that is non-critical as far as resilient deformation is concerned, are related. Results which indicate that increasing the mixing time of the soil-cement reduces the resilient deformation are also given. /TRRL/
