The effect of the method of compaction on the unconfined compressive strength of soil-cement mixtures for different molding water contents; cement contents, and curing time was investigated. Two methods of compaction—impact and kneading—were used. Method of compaction influences the unconfined compressive strength of soil-cement mixtures. Impact compaction produces higher strengths than kneading compaction for granular soils at all curing ages and molding water contents. For cohesive soil-cement mixtures, rate of strength gain depends on method of compaction.
