Seite 170 - All depressions that may appear during the rolling are to be filled with earth and rolled until an even surface is obtained. Where no change from the present grade of those portions of the road not already surfaced with stone is shown on the profile, the road-bed is to be shaped to the proper cross-section and rolled to a firm smooth surface before the application of broken stone, the price for this work to be included in that for

Seite 270 - The troughing has a slight pitch, commonly about one inch in 20 feet, but the amount depends on the kaolin, and whether the contained sand is fine or coarse. If the kaolin is very fine, and settles slowly, the pitch need not be so great, and vice versa. A large quantity of very coarse sand in the kaolin is a nuisance, as it clogs up the log washer and the upper end of the trough more quickly, causing much labor to keep them clean. As it is, considerable sand settles there, and, to keep the trough...

Seite 285 - Now, as each of these three compounds of the kaolin — clay substance, quartz and feldspar — have characteristic properties, the kaolin will vary in its behavior according as one or the other of these constituents predominates or tends to. increase. As to the characters of these three, quartz is nearly infusible, nonplastic, has very little shrinkage, and is of low tensile strength ; feldspar is easily fusible, and alone has little plasticity ~T kaolinite is plastic and quite refractory, but shrinks...
Seite 294 - The residual fire-clays found at Pomona and Grover are coarsegrained clays with much intermixed quartz and mica. The kaolins are of special importance and of excellent quality, the most important being at Webster and west of Sylva. Sedimentary clays. — The Coastal Plain deposits of North Carolina furnish the most extensive beds of clay to be found within the state.
