SOIL EROSION AND DUST CONTROL ON ARIZONA HIGHWAYS: PART II. LABORATORY TESTING PROGRAM
Forty-six commercially available chemicals were tested in this study. Laboratory testing included subjecting specimens of a dune sand, treated with spray-on chemicals, to simulated wind velocities up to 90 mph. Specimens of compacted granitic soil, treated with either a spray-on or a mixed-in application of the chemicals, were subjected to simulated traffic abrasive forces under simulated tire pressures up to 60 psi. Selected chemical treatments were subjected to various environmental-durability conditions before testing. Durability conditions included freeze-thaw cycles, wet-dry cycles, rainfall-dry cycles, and variation of curing temperatures. Based upon the results of this laboratory testing phase, several chemical stabilizers were selected for applications in a large scale field testing program.
