Abstract:

Information and data on stabilization of deep soil layers indicated that certain stabilization procedures should be evaluated in various field test section studies. The report describes the design, construction and evaluation of drill hole lime, pressure injection lime, and post-hole pile test sections built at Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma. All of the stabilization procedures effected a strengthening in at least one of the test sections. The general ranking of procedure effectiveness was 1 Post-hole pile 2 pressure injection lime, and 3 drill hole lime.
