Content DescriptionSoil cement is a densely compacted mixture of portland cement, soil/aggregate, other cementitious materials (possibly), and water. Used primarily as a base material for pavements, soil cement has also been used for slope protection, low-permeability liners, foundation stabilization, and other applications. This report contains information on applications, material properties, mixture proportioning, construction, and quality-control inspection and testing procedures for soil cement. This report’s intent is to provide basic information on soil cement technology with an emphasis on current practice regarding design, testing, and construction.
