The basic problem which is pursued in reinforcing the soils for roadbuilding purposes is to develop ways to impart to them an irreversible cohesiveness, increased strength, and resistance to the effect of water and frost. In the tests on studying the variation in the aggregate composition and properties of soils, the authors used a silty carbonaceous clay, a heavy silty loam of podzolic type and a heavy loam with a neutral reaction. As stabilizers, use was made of cement, lime, electric steel smelting slags and ferrochrome slags. Results are discussed.
