An approach in improving the properties of sand dunes

An experimental study to improve sand dunes to gain economic construction of highway by using the locally available materials is described. The study was divided into two approaches; the first was by using different bituminous binder proportions from (2) to (10) percent, while the second was to use fine metals as reinforcement. The results show an increase in the degree of improvement as reinforcement layers and silt contents were increased. Also it was found that 8% of asphalt cement increased the stabilization of sand dunes. For the covering abstract see ITRD E125180.
