LOAD FACTORS FOR CONCRETE PIPES BEEDED IN CEMENT-TREATED SOIL

Load factors obtained from full-scale tests on concrete pipes bedded in cement-treated soil are reported. Both cradle and radial beddings were tested. Principal test variables were bedding angle, thickness, and strength. Most load tests were made with 36-in.-ID pipes. A few tests were made with 60-in.-ID pipes. The investigation demonstrated the practicability and ease of bedding pipes in cement-treated soils. Test data showed that cement-treated soil beddings provide load factors than those obtained with commonly used bedding methods. Guidelines are presented for selecting the type of soil to be treated and for proportioning soil, cement, and water to obtain the desired fluidity and strength. /Author/
