This paper describes the effects of cement type on unconfined compressive characteristics of cement-stabilized soils. Two cements were used in the present study the normal portland cement and the portland blast-furnace(B) cement. Results of unconfined compression tests on stabilized soils show that the differences in unconfined compressive characteristics between cement stabilized soil utilizing normal portland cement and portland blast-furnace(B) cement tested at the same compound conditions maybe dramatic. In all tests reported herein, the unconfined compressive and deformation modulus of the cement stabilized specimen utilizing portland blast-furnace(B) cement are shown to be quantitatively greater than those of normal portland cement. These findings will lead to proper selection of the cement type for cement-stabilized soils.
