With the soil-resin stabilized samples, experimental curves are obtained showing how unconfined compressive strengths are related to percent stabilizer at different temperatures with different catalysts, such as pentachlorophenol and ferric chloride. The study indicates that at a lower temperature the ferric chloride gives a slightly better strength than pentachlorophenol, but at a higher temperature the pentachlorophenol gives a higher strength.
