Abstract:

Soil stabilization studies were conducted on two soil types from differnet slide areas along the Boyd-Roosevelt Highway, Panama. Physical and chemical properties of the soils were evaluated to determine if the soils could be stabilized or otherwise improved for construction purposes. Selected engineering properties, unconfined compressive strength and California bearing ratio CBR, were determined for the soils in their natural state and after mixing them with lime and cement. Soil improvements resulting from the stabilizing agents were evaluated.
