Abstract:

Soil-cement was considered as a slope protection material to be used on the Truscott Dam which will impound water having high sulfate and chloride contents 3,000 mgL and 10,000 mgL, respectively. Type II and Type V cements, with and without fly ash as a cement replacement, were used to prepare specimens for the following tests compressive strength, sulfate attack and expansion, wetting-drying, frost damage, and optimum moisture-maximum density. It was recommended that a mixture of 10 percent Type V cement and a granular non-plastic soil be used to provide the required slope protection.
