Investigation of conventional lime stabilisation of subgrades versus the use of geotextiles in road construction

This report outlines the process of lime stabilization, the use of geotextiles and offers an economic comparison and the expected performance of flexible urban pavements when both types of stabilization are used. The comparison has been achieved by analyzing 4 case studies with varying California Bearing Ratio's (CBR values). As part of these 4 case studies, a subgrade without stabilization has also been analyzed in order to gauge the economic and performance benefits of each stabilization treatment.
