REPLACING GRAVEL USED FOR FROST BLANKETING PURPOSES WITH LIME STABILIZED LOAM COURSES

ERSATZ VON FROSTSCHUTZKIES DURCH KALKSTABILISIERTE LEHMSCHICHTEN

Experiments carried out on test road sections and in laboratories indicate that gravel for frost blanketing purposes can be replaced with lime stabilized loam strata. Adding a 3 to 4% proportion of quick-lime renders the loam sufficiently frost resistant. This resistance to frost was proven in both frost and resistance tests carried out on test samples in the laboratory. Replacing frost blankets with lime stabilized loam layers may be regarded as economical during gravel-sand shortages. /TRRL/
