Estimation of the Compressive Strength and Modulus of Elasticity of Cement-Treated Aggregate Base Materials Conference Paper uri icon


  • Experimental study on the development of strength and modulus of elasticity of cement-treated aggregate base (CTAB) materials was undertaken. Unconfined uniaxial compression tests were conducted with 189 samples for 16 CTAB mixtures at different ages. Two different aggregates, conventional crushed limestone base and recycled concrete materials, were used in the test program. Using the test results, equations were proposed to estimate the development of compressive strength and modulus of elasticity of CTAB materials with time. Test results indicated that the relationship between the compressive strength and elastic modulus of CTAB materials could be expressed in a single equation regardless of aggregate type and mixture proportions.
