Abstract : One peculiarity of motor vehicle roads and airfields is that they depend greatly on the climatic, soil and hydrogeological conditions of the terrain. Therefore, all natural factors must be considered and used to the maximum in the construction and operation of roads and airfields. Another peculiarity is that their construction utilizes tremendous volumes of various types of rock materials. In construction regions where rock materials are not available, rock must be transported over many hundreds of kilometers by railroad, and dozens of kilometers by truck, increasing the costs of these materials by 4 to 5 times or more. The book discusses various methods of stabilization of various types of soils which are widely used and new methods developed for the future. (Author)
