BP08
Stabilised soils as a subbase or base for road and other pavements

Gives guidance on the two-stage stabilisation of cohesive soils, such as clay, using lime followed by cement, pfa and/or ggbs to produce a strengthened sub-base or base. Covers specification, site investigation, mix design, construction and testing.

BP13
Cement and other hydraulically bound mixtures

Describes the European standard BS EN 14227 issued in November 2004 that covers hydraulically bound mixtures for road and other pavements. Explains how the new mixtures compare with those specified for use before that date and gives guidance on their selection and specification.

BP26
HBM and Stabilisation 1 - Parking Areas and Hardstandings

Provides design and specification guidelines for clients, designers and contractors wishing to use hydraulically bound mixtures for parking areas and hardstandings. Also covers mixture design, construction and control testing and includes a useful glossary of terms.

BP27
HBM and Stabilisation 2 - Residential and Commercial Road Pavements

Provides design and specification guidelines for clients, designers and contractors wishing to use hydraulically bound mixtures for residential and commercial road pavements. Also covers mixture design, construction and control testing and includes a useful glossary of terms.

BP28
HBM and Stabilisation 3 - Heavy-Duty Paving

Provides design and specification guidelines for clients, designers and contractors wishing to use hydraulically bound mixtures for heavy-duty paving in areas subject to wheel/axle loading in excess of that permitted on public roads. Also covers mixture design, construction and control testing and includes a useful glossary of terms.

BP51
Guidelines for stabilisation of sulfate-bearing soils ' New Edition

These guidelines for the stabilisation of sulfate bearing clays are based on current knowledge and experience. They aim to explain the mechanisms that cause sulfate heave, recommend methods for sampling and testing for sulfates and sulphides and describe measures to minimise the risk of sulfate-related disruption. This publication is an update of the original version, which was published in 2005.

BP62
Soil Improvement and Soil Stabilisation - Definitive Industry Guidance

This document is an introductory and technical guide to mix-in-place soil improvement and stabilisation. It outlines industry best practice and provides technical information plus signposts to industry standards and further reading.

COMP3ST
Comparison of 3 Swell/Stability Tests on Clay Soils Treated with Lime, Cement and GGBS - released December 2013

This report reviews the test methods used to assess the potential for treated/stabilised soils to swell or disintegrate because of the presence of sulfates or sulphides in the soil.

TN1/HD25
THE In-Service Properties of Hydraulically Treated Soils After 10 to 40 Years Service

Cores were taken as part of a UK Highways Agency project that assessed the performance of treated soft rocks and cohesive soils for road pavement foundations. This paper compares the properties of these cores with the original & current specifications, and the construction results for the treated layers.
