CEMENT-TREATED SUBBASE PRACTICE IN U.S. AND CANADA

IN AREAS WHERE GRANULAR MATERIALS MEETING SUBBASE SPECIFICATIONS ARE SCARE, CEMENT-TREATED SUBBASES OFTEN PROVIDE AN ECONOMICAL SOLUTION. BESIDES PREVENTING EROSION CAUSED BY PUMPING, CEMENT-TREATED SUBBASE CAN USE INEXPENSIVE SUBSTANDARD GRANULAR MATERIALS AND CAN PROVIDE A STABLE, WATER-RESISTANT WORKING TABLE FOR THE CONTRACTOR. USE OF THINNER CONCRETE SLAB IS PERMITTED, RESULTING IN IMPROVED PAVEMENT PERFORMANCE. HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF CEMENT-TREATED SUBBASES, NOW USED IN 31 STATES AND PROVINCES, IS PRESENTED. DETAILS ARE INCLUDED ON SUGGESTED CRITERIA FOR GRANULAR MATERIALS AND CEMENT REQUIREMENTS, ON DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE OF EXPERIMENTAL PROJECTS, ON STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES, ON CONSTRUCTION METHODS USED FOR FINE-GRADING, AND ON PERFORMANCE OF PROJECTS IN SERVICE.
