  • Soil stabilization is the permanent physical and chemical alteration of soils to enhance their physical properties. Stabilization can increase the shear strength of a soil and/or control the shrink-swell properties of a soil, thus improving the load bearing capacity of a sub-grade to support pavements and foundations.Stabilization is used on a variety of soil compositions including expansive clays, peats, silts and granular materials.Stabilized soils typically produce higher CBR values, increasing subgrade load bearing capacity to the point that it can be incorporated into the structural design of a pavement's cross section, reducing pavement and aggregate base thickness.

    Synthesis 421TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Synthesis 421: Recycling and Reclamation of Asphalt Pavements Using In-Place Methods discusses the use of hot in-place recycling, cold in-place recycling, and full-depth reclamation of asphalt pavements. In-place recycling and reclamation of asphalt pavements provides agencies with the ability to optimize the value of in-place materials, minimize construction time and traffic flow disruptions, and reduce the number of construction vehicles moving in and out of the construction area.(click on image for more)
