CONCEPTS FOR DEVELOPING STABILIZATION RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE SOILS OF AN AREA

RECOMMENDATIONS WERE DEVELOPED FOR THE STABILIZATION OR BENEFICIATION OF MAJOR SOIL MATERIALS OF ILLINOIS, AND PROCEDURES AND CONCEPTS USED IN THE DEVELOPMENT ARE PRESENTED GIVEING A TYPICAL EXAMPLE OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS. THE INVESTIGATION INCLUDED CONSIDERATION OF LIME, CEMENT, BITUMEN, LIME-FLY ASH, COMBINATIONS, AND BLENDING AS STABILIZING TECHNIQUES. STABILIZATION OBJECTIVES WERE CHARACTERIZED AS (1) CONSTRUCTION EXPEDIENT, (2) SUBGRADE MODIFICATION, AND (3) STRENGTH AND DURABILITY IMPROVEMENT. THE RECOMMENDATIONS DEVELOPED ARE BASED ON THE PEDOLOGICAL CLASSIFICATION OF THE SOILS AND THE RESULTS OF LABORATORY TESTS AND OTHER PUBLISHED RESEARCH DATA OF THE AUTHORS. ALTHOUGH THE REPORT IS SPECIFICALLY CONCERNED WITH ILLINOIS MATERIALS, OTHERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO UTILIZE AND ADAPT THE GUIDELINES AND CRITERIA IN DEVELOPING STABILIZATION RECOMMENDATIONS FOR OTHER SOILS IN OTHER AREAS. /BPR/
