Overview of Cement-Stabilized Subgrade Soils

the thickness between the clay particles is reduced. Cement can provide sufficient calcium ions to replace the monovalent cations on the surfaces of the clay particles. This ion exchange process occurs within hours, shrinking the layer of water be-tween the clay particles and reducing the plasticity of the soil/ aggregate (Figure 2a).

Lime Vs Cement: Which Soil Stabilization Method is Better ...

Apr 23, 2021  Soil cement stabilization is a construction technique used to increase the strength of subgrade soil by mixing it with cement and water. The water hydrates the cement, generating reactions that create a matrix between the soil particles and gives the soil strength. Cement stabilization is especially useful in coarse-grained soils.

Soil/Lime Stabilization Houston Concrete Construction

The use of lime can modify almost all fine-grained soils to some extent, but the most dramatic improvement occurs in clay soils of moderate to high plasticity. Modification occurs primarily due to the exchange of calcium cations supplied by the hydrated lime for the normally present cation adsorbed on the surface of the clay mineral.

Strip, trench fill or pad foundations must be cast at a minimum of 750mm in low plasticity clays, 900mm in medium, and 1000mm in the highest risk areas.
