Chemical Stabilisation of Sand : Part* II Construction and Studies of 50m X 4m Road
Keywords: Sand composition, Trafficability studies, Load bearing capacity, Silicate stabilised track, Sand bed
AbstractAn experimental track (50m X 4m) was constructed on a loose sand bed by using two chemical-sand composition containing either 9 per cent urea formaldehyde (UF) resin or 11 per cent sodium silicate binder (on solid content basis). The trafficability studies on 5-6 cm thick stabilised track was found to vary from 1625 to 1700 psi in UF stabilised track and from 1340 to 1460 psi in silicate stabilised track. The effect of resin, desert environmental conditions and trafficability studies showed cumulative loss of load bearing capacity from 1625-1700 to 645-1125 psi.
