LIME-SOIL STABILIZATION INVESTIGATION FOR RAILROAD CONSTRUCTION

The use of lime to stabilize soil for railroad roadbed construction was investigated. Three types of soil were subjected to grain analysis, pH tests, unconfined compression tests, and Atterburg Limit tests. Soil number 1 and soil number 3 can be satisfactorily stabilized by the use of lime. Soil number 2 does not yield to stabilization with lime, and is not suitable for this purpose.
