1.1.These methods cover procedures for determining the soil-cement losses, moisture changes, and volume changes (swell and shrinkage) produced by repeated freezing and thawing of hardened soil-cement specimens.
The specimens are compacted in a mold, before cement hydration, to maximum density at optimum moisture content using the compaction procedure described in T 134.
1.2.Two methods depending on soil gradation, are covered for preparation of material for molding specimens and molding specimens
1.2.1.Method A-Using soil material passing the 4.75-mm (No. 4) sieve.
