The soil cement stabilization method was used on the subgrade prior to paving 50 acres of parking lots and access roads to a shopping mall. In the initial stabilization operation, the graded area to be treated was sprayed with water to optimum moisture content, using an adapted Mack dump truck. A spreader then put the cement down at a rate of 7-1/2 percent (38 lbs per sq. yd), the content being increased to 10 percent in stable areas. The cement and wet soil was then pulvimixed. The cement density was constantly tested. Rewatering and remixing were also part of the overall operation, followed by vibratory rolling. A cationic emulsion spray at the rate of 2/10 gallon per sq. yd. was applied to the treated area to retard curing. Uniform curing is one of the most vital steps in the whole process. Black top paving was done on the stabilized areas as soon as the curing was complete.
