NEW APPROACH TO PREDICT LIME REACTIVITY OF SOILS

The purpose of this paper is to provide a nondestructive technique that can be used to evaluate the lime reactivity of a soil from the long-term strength developed in lime stabilized soils in a short-term test. The method proposed is based on the dielectric dispersion properties of clay-water electrolyte system. The properties of treated and untreated soil samples were compared and the difference between them was found to correlate with lime reactivity, i.e. the greater the difference after 1 day cure, the higher the strength after 7 and 28-day cure.
