Technical reportAbstract: Personnel of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), Vicksburg, MS, conducted a series of laboratory experiments designed to characterize the constitutive properties of selected soil minerals and nontraditional stabilization additives. The results of these experiments were analyzed and included in this report to document the baseline characteristics prior to mixing the stabilizers and individual soil minerals. Analyses of the potential of individual stabilization products to reinforce specific soil types were conducted and reported. Additionally, an experimental modeling approach for describing the reinforcement mechanisms of individual stabilization agents was developed.
