Please plan to join KC ASCE and APWA KC Metro Chapter for their monthly March Luncheon presented by George A. Tannoury (Geotechnical Department Manager at Terracon Consultants, Inc.) on Cement Modified Soil for Pavement Applications . This meeting is scheduled to be held at Porto do Sul Brazilian Stakehouse in Overland Park, KS.
For many years, the ability to stabilize soil for pavement base material relied heavily on the use of Fly Ash, a bi-product of energy generation from coal-fired power stations. But more recently, new regulations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has impacted the availability, and expense, of Fly Ash, making it costly for DOTs and public entities to use for the base layer under pavement. With natural gas being a cheaper and more environmentally-friendly alternative to coal, Fly Ash supplies may continue to decrease while prices increase. Cement Modified Soil (CMS) provides a better, cost-effective alternative.
