Durability and Strength Characteristics of Cement Stabilized Modified Melaka Series

A study to compare the relationship between strength and durability of cement stabilized Melaka Series (modified with river sand) was carried out. Reduction in fines percentage and increase in cement content improved the strength characteristics. Cement content had a greater influence on durability compared to percentage of fines. The percentage of weight loss obtained was well within the durability limit even though the unconfined compressive strength was 1.6 MN/m2 ( below the recommended strength for roadbases of lightlytraficked roads, 1.7MN/m2). Thus durability will simultaneously be satisfied if the strength criterion is met, within the fines percentage of 37 and 56 were studied.
