As part of a long-range project to investigate the stabilization of loess and glacial till for low cost road construction, property studies of the Wisconsin loess of east-central Iowa were carried on at the Engineering Experiment Station of Iowa State College during the year 1952-1953. Previous work 1,2,3,4 1950-1952, dealt with the properties of the Wisconsin loess of southwestern Iowa; stabilization studies are now under way with the loess from that area. In east-central Iowa, the loess was studied with a two-fold objective: to determine the variations in properties pertinent to stabilization, and to compare these properties with those of the southwestern Iowa loess. This paper reports only on the property variations.
