Abstract : An investigation was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of in-place stabilization of soils by the mixing of resinous, quick-curing material into the soil. Investigation of candidate materials indicated that polyester resin, promoted with dimethylaniline and catalyzed with benzoyl peroxide, is the most effective and the most readily controlled of the materials investigated, while accommodating variations in soil types, soil moisture content, and temperature.
