Title:Characterizing the Ductility of Portland Cement Stabilized Soil
Principal Investigators:James Bay and John Rice
University:Utah State University
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-477
RiP #:01579594
RH Display ID:150836
Keywords:base course (pavements), deformation, ductility, ductility tests, permeability, portland cement, service life, soil stabilization


The objective of this research is to develop one or more testing method to give indices of ductility for Portland cement, lime, or fly-ash stabilized soils. These indices will provide a relative characterization of the ductility of different materials, and that can be used to compare the ductility of different materials. This index will provide a tool that can be used in subsequent research to quantify effects of ductility on long-term performance, and to compare ductility of different materials or mix designs.
