Lime-Cement Stabilization of Wet Cohesive Soils

Paper by VERHASSELT from ISCR 6th 1990

When treated with lime, wet cohesive soils granulate and be-ome more workable, thus allowing easier subsequent incor-oration of cement.'he effects of pregranulation with lime on various aspects ofement stabilization were investigated: compaction. CBR bear-19 capacity, strength values, durability, the effects of differentariables such as density and moulding moisture content. Theitter can, in some cases, lead to unusual behaviour of the soil-ement mixture.)0 the whole, and considering the drying effect obtained,regranulation markedly improves the performance of cementtabilization, thereby extending its field of application to muchlore cohesive soils than before.
