Easy to edit master specification covering 31 32 14 Lime Slurry Soil Stabilization. The section includes lime injection of soils for stabilization of building subgrades or under structures. Suitable for soils like clay, silty clay, and clayey gravel but is not suitable for granular or sandy soil.
The principle behind lime soil stabilization is to increase the soil’s plastic limit and reduce its plasticity index, resulting in increased stability of the soil. If clay soil contains gravel, lime acts as a binder for the gravel.
This section should be prepared based on the findings of a geotechnical report prepared by a licensed geotechnical engineer and in conjunction with the project structural engineer.
