Abstract : The report presents the results of the investigations made since those reported in 'Report on Studies of Base Course Treatment to Prevent Frost Action', June 1946. It presents a study of previous investigations to determine the relationship between void ratio and the amount of salt required to prevent frost action, the results of laboratory tests to determine the effect of rock content of soils on the amount of admixture required to make them non-frost susceptible, and the results of laboratory tests to determine the effectiveness of 'Darex AEA' as an admixture for preventing frost action. Representative data are presented. (Author)
