Frost-susceptibility testing and predictions for the Raymark Superfund Site by Vincent C Janoo( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project was conducted to assist in predicting the effects of freeze and thaw cycling on Tilcon common granular fill during the freezing season. This material is being used as the subbase material in the proposed pavement structure at the Raymark Superfund site in Stratford, Connecticut. Based on the initial laboratory results of the Tilcon material performed at CRREL, the amount of fines passing the no. 200 sieve was found to be in the vicinity of 20%, of which approximately 14% was finer than 0.02 m. Results from the frost heave tests indicate that when the Tilcon material is saturated, based on the rate of heave, the material is classified a high to very high frost susceptible material. In the saturated condition, the material is classified as a low to medium frost susceptible material. Computer simulations were run to predict the amount of frost heave and frost penetration that may be expected on this site during the freezing season. Results from the laboratory frost susceptibility tests and com uter simulations were then used to estimate the amount of cumulative damage to the pavement structure during its design life
Results of stabilized waste material testing for the Raymark Superfund Site by Vincent C Janoo( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project was conducted to assist in predicting the effects of freeze-thaw cycling on stabilized hazardous waste material during the 1996-97 freezing season. The Raymark Superfund site in Stratford, Connecticut, is under remediation with the intent of using the area for commercial development. The site was classified as a Superfund site in 1995. The on-site soil contains asbestos, lead, PCBs, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-VOCs, and solvents. These contaminants are by-products of the manufacturing process for heat-resistant automotive parts. The stabilized waste material is being used as the subgrade material in the pavement structure. Field testing was conducted to determine the unconfined compressive strength of the stabilized material before and after the freezing season. Testing was completed using the Clegg impact soil tester and dynamic cone penetrometer. Additionally, thermocouples were installed to estimate the depth of frost penetration that could be expected, and to ensure that the overlying layers in the pavement structure would be adequate to prevent frost penetration into the stabilized layer
Off-the-shelf antifreeze admixture for concrete : initial laboratory investigation by C. J Korhonen( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set-controlling and water-reducing admixtures conforming to ASTM C 494 were studied for their effect on strength gain of portland cement concrete at below-freezing temperatures. Because standard practice does not limit the number of admixtures that can be used in concrete, the objective was to use as many admixtures as necessary to depress the freezing point of the mix water to -5 deg C (23 deg F) or below and to promote strength gain reasonably quickly. A combination of set accelerators with water reducers showed promise of promoting significant strength gain at nearly -10 deg C (14 deg F), but at the sacrifice of workability. More work needs to be done to develop a combination of off-the-shelf admixtures that will permit concreting at temperatures as low as -10 deg C (14 deg F)
Expedient MESL construction in cold weather by Jeffrey A Stark( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new method of constructing membrane-encapsulated soil layers (MESLs) using plastic membranes, geotextiles, tapes for sealing the membranes, and absorbents for drying the soil were demonstrated. These materials would allow construction of a MESL in cold weather. The demonstration took place at Fort Drum, New York, and at Ethan Allen Firing Range, Jericho Vermont. Three layers of a 271-g/m2 (8-oz/yd2) geotextile successfully protected the membrane during a puncture test, and absorbents successfully caused the soil to act drier to increase vehicle trafficability. However, the geotextile is still too weak to be used in a MESL. Although the individual components performed well, the construction process is too exacting to be performed successfully and is not recommended for Army engineers
