Abstract:

The book presents theoretical and practical problems of stabilizing normally moist or waterlogged soils with binders liquid shale and furfural tars, liquid spent sulfite liquor concentrates, phosphoric acid and its salts, quicklime, calcined magnesium, cement, and mineral wastes of industrial enterprises. The properties of these organic and inorganic chemical products used in airfield and road construction are examined. Physicomechanical properties of soils stabilized with chemical products are described. Methods of chemical stabilization of soils in airfields and roads chiefly in the northwestern and western oblasts of the podzolic zone of the European part of the USSR are presented a number of methods can be also employed in other zones. The methods presented here have been selected on the basis that their practical realization will satisfy the conditions under which the principal material for soil stabilization will be predominantly local material employed generally without heating, and suitable for application to soil, and thereby affording utilization in operation of relatively simple technological procedures.
