Effect of Lime on Soil Strength

Dec 10, 2019· Lime provides an economical way of soil stabilization. Lime modification describes an increase in strength brought by cation exchange capacity rather than cementing effect brought by pozzolanic reaction (Sherwood, 1993). It is one of the traditional binders which are used in stabilization of fine-grained soils.
