Abstract

Compaction and strength properties of cement-mixed well-graded gravel are studied. Such materials can also be considered as a kind of concrete materials which has much lower cement contents than usual. New concepts on material properties related to their mixture ratio of cement, gravel (aggregate) and water, as well as their compaction density, are proposed, unifying the concepts of geotechnical engineering and concrete engineering. For materials with higher cement contents, the compaction curve becomes flat, with lower maximum compaction density, and higher optimum water contents. The triaxial compressive strength are clearly affected by the dry density, as well as the cement contents.
