Abstract : The report summarizes a study of the feasibility of stabilizing or otherwise improving for construction purposes three unsuitable soils found in Afghanistan. The stabilizing agents used were lime and cement commercially available in Afghanistan. Test results indicated that all three soils can be effectively stabilized with the addition of lime or cement. All three soils are reactive with lime or cement and will readily combine to increase strength and durability with the resulting stabilized soils being suitable for construction. (Author)
