[automatically translated] In the note we present the first results of an experimental investigation as to study the effect of liming on the microstructural characteristics of high plasticity clay, from the excavations carried out in the course of modernization works of a road of great communication in Sicily . The specimens, compacted in a laboratory at different percentages of lime, were subjected to tests porosimetric Mercury intrusion MIP and observations to the electronic SEM microscope. The analysis of the results shows that the treated clay with lime assumes a distribution of pores of typical dual-porosity materials, and that the effects on the microstructure depend on the amount of lime added and the curing time.
