PRINCIPLES AND APPLICATION OF CEMENT AND LIME STABILISATION

This paper discusses the principles underlying the application of cement and lime stabilization in road construction. Stabilization is defined as treatment to improve and maintain the engineering properties of soils: volume, stability, strength, permeability and durability. The changes in these properties as a results of the addition of various amounts of cement or lime are described with reference to soil type, mixing compaction and curing. Typical properties are indicated and criteria are given for both techniques aith suggested additive controls for various soils in various applications. A final section briefly describes other stabilizers. /Australian Road Research Board/
