Document Type: Journal Paper


Deep-plow lime stabilization equipment and procedures for treating substantial thicknesses (18–36 in.) (30–90 cm) of in situ subgrade soil are described. Field study data and results are summarized and potential field applications are considered. It is concluded that deep-plow lime stabilization procedures can be successfully utilized in pavement construction if appropriate consideration is given to stabilization objectives and quality control requirements.
