In Sweden, lime and lime-cement have been used for several decades as stabilising agents in deep stabilisation of soft soils. More recently, other types of binder have come into use, but so far only to a limited extent. In order to gather experience about the effect of various binders, laboratory tests have been performed on different types of soil stabilised with a range of binders. Lime, cement, fly ash and blast furnace slag in different combinations together with different admixtures, such as gypsum, silica fume and calcium chloride, have been used in the investigations. The variation in strength with type of binder has been studied, and comparisons have also been made with results from some previous investigations using different binders. The tests showed that there is no optimal, universal binder for stabilisation of the soils. Whereas some binders are robust, yielding good results in most types of soil, there are also binders that produce very good results in certain soils but poor results in others. Both similarities and differences in effects were found for different binders.
