Stabilization with a cementitious or asphaltic binder. The addition of an appropriate binder (such as lime, portland cement or emulsified asphalt) can increase subgrade stiffness and/or reduce swelling tendencies. Additional base layers. Marginally poor subgrade soils may be made acceptable by using additional base layers.
Subgrades & Subbases for Concrete Slabs - The Concrete Network
Most subgrade improvement is accomplished by compacting the soil. In extreme situations, when the soil is particularly bad or the loads high, soil stabilization can be used. In this process, portland cement, calcium chloride, or lime are mixed into the soil then it is compacted.
Subgrade and Subbase for Concrete Slabs - The Constructor
Soil stabilization; Portland cement, calcium chloride, or lime blended into the soil then it is compacted. Excavated subgrade, mix it with gravel then apply compaction effort. 4. Subbase for Concrete Slab Subbase is a layer of gravel, which is fairly cheap material, placed on top of subgrade.

Chemical testing includes oxide analyses (SiO 2, CaO, Al 2 O 3, Fe 2 O 3, etc.) to allow the cement phase composition to be calculated. Type II cements are limited in C150/M 85 to a maximum of 8 percent by mass of tricalcium aluminate (a cement phase, often abbreviated C 3 A), which impacts a cement''s sulfate resistance. Certain oxides are ...

Chemical soil stabilization, in accordance with the " Guidelines for Modification and Stabilization of Soils and Base for Use in Pavement Structures." The target additive content must be designed to provide a permanently stabilized subgrade soil layer in accordance with the applicable test method for the type of additive under consideration.
The portland cement nomenclature is the same as C 1157. The blended cement nomenclature builds off those designations. As with the ASTM specifications, white cement could be specified under the portland cement designation, but would not likely be specified under the blended cement specifications. See CSA Group for more information.
Soil stabilization methods include: Drain excess moisture out of the soils using drainage tile; Tilling and turning over the soil to help dry it. Excavation into the dirt subgrade and replacing the soil with a proper base material to help bridge the unstable soils. Soil separation fabric to keep the soils from intermingling with the base material.
