Research on Wet-Chemical Deformation of Roadbed Built with Weathered Stone
Based on analyses on mineral composition, mechanical property and hydrology property, large-scale triaxial shear test and vibration test were used to study the effect on strength and deformation characteristic, which was caused by wet-chemical and soften of the fillings. Then trial roadbed was filled with 3 typical rocks. Modulus of resilience on the top of the roadbed was gotten via a larger-diameter (D=75 cm) plate loading test which could provide important parameter for pavement structure design. Wet-chemical deformation is researched under constant load amount to deadweight of the roadbed. Experiment results show : (1)single-axle compressive strength (>15 MPa) and modulus of resilience (E0=91.7 MPa) of 3 fillings match the requirement according to specification; (2) these 3 rocks can be used as filling in roadbed; (3) as the fillings have wet-chemical, soften, and expansion properties, the suggestion of damp-proofing and drainage works should be adopted in construction.
