Abstract: Since 1961, the use of soil-cement in energy and water resource projects has increased from 51,000 yd³ to over 9,100,000 yd³. Its primary applications are erosion protection and seepage control for embankments, reservoirs, and channels. Innovations in the use of soil-cement are described, including embankments composed entirely of solid soil-cement, soil-cement for erosion protection in coastal areas, and low permeability soil-cement for seepage control.
