EVALUATION OF SULFATE EXPANSION IN SOIL-CEMENTS

This paper presents the results of an evaluation of internal sulfate attack in soil-cements. Differences in rates and amounts of expansion were evaluated for several aggregate types. Sulfate expansion of soil-cement was evaluated using a modified version of ASTM Test Method for Length Change of Hardened Hydraulic Cement Mortar and Concrete (C 157) that utilized a falling weight compaction procedure and large 76 by 76 by 286-mm bars. This paper compares this new test procedure with already established means of evaluating internal sulfate expansion of soil-cement.
