Paper Title:
Evaluating the Impact of Coarse Aggregate Content on Properties of Cement Treated Base
  Abstract

This paper mainly presents the study on the properties of cement treated aggregate with different coarse aggregate content. The test specimens which contain 75%, 70%, 65%, 60% and 55% of coarse aggregates were made and the 7d, 28d, and 90d unconfined compressive strengths (UCS), 28d thremal shrinkage coefficient, as well as 90d anti-erosion performance were tested. Results show that with the increase of coarse aggregate, the maximum dry density (MDD)of the cement treated aggregate mixture increased slowly at first to reached the peak value and then decreased rapidly; The optimum moisture content (OMC) declined with the increase of coarse aggregate content; In order to enhance the UCS of cement treated aggregate, coarse aggregate of mixture can be increased to some extent, but too much coarse aggregate will increase the void of the specimen and lead to lower UCS; Increasing the content of coarse aggregate is able to decrease the thermal shrinkage coefficient and erosion quantity of 30 min of the specimens. This is favourable to enhance the cracking resistance and anti-erosion performance of cement treated aggregate base course.
