The relative stabilizing effects of 2 hydrated limes and 3 quicklimes from various commercial producers are discussed. The effects of variations in lime gradation and calcium hydroxide content on the unconfined compressive strength of 3 different soils are presented. The strengths of specimens treated with hydrated lime, even in comparisons based on equivalent Ca(OH)2 content. It was also found that the coarser limes tested were more effective than the fine. Correlations are established between lime gradation and compactability and between specimen density and compressive strength.
