Abstract:

In this study, the objective was to blend and mix Portland cement and bitumen emulsion with soil for enhancing the strength, durability and pertinent properties of the soil. In order to enhance the soil strength and lessen its vulnerability to water, soil stabilization is required to be applied to the soil. In line with this, improved load transfer was added to the pavement foundation by having the cement effect which actually boosts the stiffness and Bitumen emulsion effects which improve resilience and soil permeability of the stabilized layer. The current study is divided into two phases. In the first phase, the optimization of Portland cement and bitumen emulsion was preformed as well as conducting a series of Indirect Tensile Strength (ITS). Furthermore, in order to lessen the pavementís thickness and to enhance its bearing capacity, alternative roadway sections were scrutinized through the second phase. The results proved that soil stabilization with cement and bitumen enhances the bearing capacity of pavements in two chief areas. Primarily, there was enhancement in pavementís lifetime and the more efficient construction time is achieved.
