SOME COMMENTS ON THE DESIGN, TESTING AND SPECIFICATION OF STABILIZED SOILS FOR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

Comments on procedures for the design, testing, and specification of stabilized soils are made in the light of recent developments, and some suggestions are made for modifications in current practice. The paper is limited to consideration of cement- and lime-stabilized soils although many points also apply to bituminous stabilization. The problems of design for a pavement material whose performance is intermediate between flexible and rigid behavior are examined, and the testing of such a material for acceptance and for construction control is discussed with particular reference to mixing, curing and compaction. On this basis suggestions are made for the specification of stabilized soil pavements. /Author/
