LIME STABILIZED SOIL - A RELEVANT METHOD FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION IN NORWAY? /IN NORWEGIAN/

THE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF LIME AS A SOIL STABILIZING FACTOR ARE REVIEWED TOGETHER WITH ITS EFFECTS. APART FROM IMMEDIATE IMPROVEMENT IN THE WORKABILITY OF THE STABILIZED CLAY, THERE IS SOME EVIDENCE THAT THE LIME HAS A LONG-TERM IMPROVING EFFECT ON THE CLAY BELOW THE STABILIZED LAYER. IT WAS OBSERVED THAT ROADS, WHERE LIME HAD BEEN APPLIED TO STABILIZE THE SUBSOIL, SEEM TO BE LESS SUSCEPTIBLE TO DAMAGE FROM FROST ACTION THAN SIMILAR ROADS IN THE SAME AREA WHERE LIME HAS NOT BEEN APPLIED. THE MAIN REASON FOR USING LIME FOR STABILIZING THE SUBSOIL IS TO ALLOW CONSTRUCTION WORK TO CONTINUE UNDER ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS. /RRL/
