It is pointed out that improved stabilization techniques involve the understanding of what needs to be achieved, the physical properties ofthe soils and what application methods exist to accomplish the result. The process of improving the properties of the material through the use of the various binders or similar constituents is an area of major concern. Many stabilizing agents are currently used. In some instances, stabilizaton may be achieved by treating the soil with one material and then following with another stabilizingadditive. Various considerations determine the stabilization application methods. The utilization of stabilization techniques fall into 4 primary categories: local problems and conditions; mixture design; evaluation of engineering properties; and pavement thickness design.
