DETERMINATION OF STRENGTH EQUIVALENCY FACTORS FOR THE DESIGN OF LIME-STABILIZED ROADWAYS

Unconfined compressive strength tests were used to measure the cementing reaction of various lime-soil combinations when cured under various conditions. Soils from twelve locations throughout California were treated with four lime products. It was determined that curing laboratory test specimens for seven days at 110 deg F (43 deg C) will provide a satisfactory method for establishing a design lime content for lime treated soils. A method for applying the design strength of lime treated soils to the California highway structural design procedure was also developed. /FHWA/
