Modification/dry up is closely related to Soil Stabilization. Each process involves the uniform application and blending of a material with site soils in order to enhance their engineering properties through chemical and physical alteration. The distinction between the two is that while stabilization drastically increases the shear strength of a material, (reducing soil plasticity and swelling and increasing load bearing capacity such that it can be incorporated into a pavement's structural design) modification/dry up is mainly a means to reduce the moisture content of a soil and increase its workability, expediting construction that would otherwise be delayed by rain or spring thaws.
While modification/dry up does provide some of the benefits of stabilization, the greatest benefit is the savings in time and money. Wet site conditions result in costly problems that are most often resolved with costly solutions. Natural drying is a lengthy process often extended by unpredictable and uncontrollable weather. The time and money spent to excavate and export unsuitable and/or saturated material, and import and place new material (not to mention the environmental impact of material transportation and placement) is a substantial expense that could be dramatically reduced by drying with lime and lime by-products. Wadel Stabilization has the ability to mobilize quickly, drying wet sites in a fraction of the time required for natural drying, for a fraction of the cost of undercutting.
By decreasing soil saturation and increasing structural capacity this modified base able to withstand imposed loads from construction traffic and heavy equipment,and allowed construction to proceed on schedule.
