THE USE OF STABILIZED PULVERIZED FUEL ASH IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION. A LABORATORY INVESTIGATION

THE REPORT IS DIVIDED INTO FOUR PARTS CONSISTING OF A STUDY OF THE VARIATION IN THE PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF PULVERIZED FUEL ASH, AN INVESTIGATION OF THE USE OF MIXTURES OF LIME AND P.F.A. AS STABILIZING AGENTS FOR NATURAL SOILS, AN ASSESSMENT OF THE SUITABILITY OF P.F.A. FOR STABILIZATION WITH LIME OR CEMENT, AND AN EXAMINATION OF THE SELF-HARDENING PROPERTIES OF P.F.A. THE INVESTIGATIONS SHOW THAT PULVERIZED FUEL ASH IS SUITABLE FOR USE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF ROAD BASES AND SUBBASES. IT IS A CHEAP AND READILY AVAILABLE MATERIAL AND ITS USE WILL HELP TO REDUCE THE DEMAND FOR NATURAL AGGREGATE IN GREAT BRITAIN AND AT THE SAME TIME ELIMINATE THE DISPOSAL PROBLEMS THAT ARE ENCOUNTERED AT POWER STATIONS. /RRL/A/
