Soil modifiion and stabilisation involves the addition of lime or cement to a soil to improve its strength and render it acceptable as an engineering fill. Quicklime (calcium oxide) is used with fine or cohesive soils, while cement is primarily used with granular soils. Cement increases the bearing ratio (CBR) and achieves higher strengths.
