Abstract:

The report summarizes the results of a study to determine the physico-chemical and strength properties of three Turkish soils and to determine methods of improving these properties. Lime and cement obtained locally were used as stabilization agents for soils no. 1 and no. 2 U.S. lime and Turkish cement were used with soil no. 3. Soil no. 1 from Uskumro was stabilized with lime, but no strength increase was obtained with the addition of cement. Soil no. 2 from Umraniye showed no reaction with lime, but demonstrated a considerable strength increase with the addition of cement. Soil no. 3 from Incirlick is reactive with both lime and cement and could be effectively stabilized by both. Author
