Cement Stabilisation of Soil – Factors for Consideration

Found an interesting piece of information here today on the Civil Engineers Forum web-site which looks at Cement Stabilisation and the different factors that affect the process and should be taken into consideration when this process is being used on a construction site, including:

  • The type of Soil that is being treated
  • Quantity of cement – how much will be needed for the process (this should be determined by a mix-design procedure before works commence)
  • Quantity of water – depending on the moisture content of the material to be treated
  • The Cement Stabilisation process – what machines will be required and the timescales
  • Other binders – are any further binders required (i.e. quicklime)

Along with the factors that should be considered there is information on the many advantages of Cement Stabilisation over traditional construction methods, including:

  • Low cost
  • Highly durable
  • Great strengths achieved
  • Environmental benefits – reduces export to landfill and import of aggregates, also reduces lorry movement
  • Save time

Have a look and let us know what you think.
