STUDY OF METHODS OF STABILIZING CONVENTIONAL BALLAST USING POLYMERS. FINAL REPORT ON CONTRACT MODIFICATION NO. 3

The report presents the results of the work performed in continuation of the research study on stabilized railroad ballast. The purpose of the continuation was to test the feasibility of applying the elastomeric cementing composition in the form of an emulsion. The principal advantage of this is that most of the agent is concentrated at the contact points of the rocks. Included are the testing procedures for the large-scale tests at the A.A.R.
