Soil Stabilisation and Lime Modification

Found a great publication here today from the Texas Department of Transportation titled “Guidelines for Modification and Stabilization of Soils and Base for Use in Pavement Structures” which looks at why and when Soil Stabilisation should be considered over traditional construction methods.

The publication runs through the whole Soil Stabilisation process in depth, including:

  • Overview – type of soil, layer required and characteristics  to consider
  • Goals of treatment – what do you want to achieve by using the treatment
  • Materials / Additives – an overview of the different binders that are typically used and how to determine which binder is the most suitable
  • Material sampling – what tests should be carried out on the natural material
  • Material testing – carrying out tests on the natural material to determine binder additions
  • Construction techniques – what machines to use and sequencing of the works
  • Material sampling – what tests should be carried out on the treated material to determine results achieved
Have a look and let us know what you think.
