  • Abstract:
    The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using an

    expansive cement, TXI 4C Chem Comp, in lieu of the regular Type I Portland

    Cement in a cement stabilized gravel screenings base so as to eliminate

    or reduce cracks associated with this type of base construction. The test

    was carried out by field experimentation and observation.

    The results of this test indicate that the use of expansive cement to

    stabilize gravel screening base material produced no appreciable reduction

    in the number or size of cracking in the base when the subgrade has a high

    clay content and that low temperatures could have a nullifying effect on the

    expansive cement. However, it was found that the frequency of cracking was

    reduced approximately 50% when gravel screening base material, stabilized with

    regular Type I Portland Cement, was placed over lime treated subgrade.
