SUMMARY REVIEWS OF SOIL STABILIZATION PROCESSES. REPT. 6. MIXING PRINCIPLES, TECHNIQUES AND EQUIPMENT.

Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of this report is to summarize the current status of mixing and mixer development, particularly the aspects of the principles employed that may lead to more efficient designs and techniques for incorporating potential stabilizers in wet, fine-grained soils. The report points out the advantages and limitations of presently available items of equipment, discusses factors contributing to the efficiency of mixing, and presents the findings of laboratory mixing investigations. The information presented herein was obtained solely from available technical literature. Only material published in or translated to English was reviewed. Although numerous investigations have been made and reported by many individuals and organizations, very little of the work involved fine-grained soils under wet conditions similar to those which would probably be encountered during military operations in forward areas. In the few instances where mixing of wet, fine-grained soils has been investigated, the studies were conducted primarily on a laboratory basis.
