Experimental Study on Mechanical Behaviors of Lime-Stabilized Soils with Small Lime Content
In order to investigate the mechanical behaviors of lime-stabilized soils with small lime content, the specimens with 4%~8% lime content and 90%~95% degree of compaction are prepared, and then in use for the unconfined compression strength test, the diametral compression test and the compression resilience modulus test after they have cured in a standard curing room for 7 to 180 days respectively. These test results show that all of the unconfined compression strength, the splitting strength and the compression modulus of resilience increase with the degree of compaction and the curing time. Thereinto, the compression modulus of resilience does rapidly between 28 and 90 curing days, and the unconfined compression strength of the soil with 4% lime content does little after 28 curing days while the compression strengths and the splitting strengths of the other soils do quickly until 90 curing days. In addition, for a given degree of compaction, these strengths of the soils with the less lime content are potentially greater at the early curing time.
