Abstract : A Guide to short-cut procedures for soil stabilization with asphalt has been prepared primarily for Naval Mobile Construction Battalion forces in areas where time and the exigencies of field operations preclude the use of the more elaborate procedures and equipment normally employed. For those with considerable experience in asphalt construction, who may feel that simple steps are covered in more than enough detail, we point out that the Guide is designed also for use by individuals to whom these procedures may be less familiar. The Navy uses both asphalt and portland cement for soil stabilizing purposes. Use of the latter is covered in Technical Note N845, 'Short-Cut Procedures for Soil Cement Construction in Sandy Soil,' October 1966. (Author)
