Improvement in the structural properties of soil layers is generally considered to be stabilization whether or not additives are used. Compaction satisfies this objective and one of the five papers presents a rapid method for evaluating the structural benefits of compaction. Three of the papers consider soil-cement mixtures. In a study of cold weather lime stabilization, the prospect of extended construction seasons was studied. Immediate amelioration of wet cohesive soils by quicklime was shown in another study to have a long-term strength gain in most cases.
