Modifying substandard soil with a small amount of cement allows for equipment platforms while projects are under construction while improving the mechanical properties of the soil to provide a stronger subbase for pavement. CMS is also used for pipe bedding and slope protection applications. Using the in-situ soil that might otherwise be unusable, saves time, money and resources while also eliminating traffic, noise and community disruption caused by trucking in the new base material. In cement-treated base construction, the objective is to obtain a thorough mixture of an aggregate/granular material with the correct quantity of portland cement and enough water to permit maximum compaction.
A stabilized base spread loads and reduces stress on the subgrade.
The completed CTB must be adequately cured to both let the cement hydrate and to harden the cement-aggregate mixture. The fundamental control factors for quality CTB are:
