Effect of Fly Ash Content on Mechanical Properties of Cement-Fly Ash Stabilized Crushed Stones
This paper investigates the effect of fly ash content on unconfined compressive strength, cleavage strength and resilient modulus of cement-fly ash stabilized crushed stones. The relationships between mechanical parameters were also studied. The results show that with fly ash content increasing, the unconfined compressive strength and cleavage strength were increasing firstly but decreased then, and the resilient modulus were decreasing. The brittleness index was increased by the increment of fly ash content. It can be concluded that the optimal fly ash content in cement-fly ash stabilized crushed stones is between 10% and 15%, and increment of fly ash content can improve its crack-resistance.
