This is a digest of recommended practices for the testing and design of a lime stabilised soil mix with a guide to the use of the stabilised soil in the field and the quality control testing required. After an introduction, in which the purpose, method, and application of stabilisation is considered, the author lists the types of lime used for stabilisation, the effect of incorporating lime in soil and the degree of its reaction with different soil types. Guidance is given for the determination of project feasibility, and recommendations for laboratory testing of available materials, and mix design. The author discusses and provides charts for the design of lime-stabilised pavement layers. A description is given of construction equipment, and procedures for the construction of pavement layers are included. Finally the author considers road repairs and quality control. /TRRL/
