Abstract:

A soil stabilization index system has been developed to aid military engineers in selecting the appropriate type and amount of soil stabilizer to use in pavement construction. This report contains the index system and the basis for its development. The index system is entered with easily determined soil properties and flow charts are followed to arrive at the most suitable stabilizer. Subsystems containing appropriate tests are used to determine specific amounts of stabilizers. Use factors, construction factors, and environmental factors are also considered in the decisionmaking process.
