What materials can be used for Soil-Cement?

The soil material in soil-cement can be almost any combination of sand, silt, clay, shell, gravel, or crushed stone. By-product materials, including cinders, fly ash, foundry sands, and  screenings from quarries and gravel pits, can all be utilized as soil material. Old granular-base roads, with or without their asphalt surfaces, can also be recycled into an excellent soil-cement base. In many cases, these materials already exist at commercial sites and eliminate the need for importing select materials for construction.


Prior to construction, simple laboratory tests are conducted on a representative sample of the soil material to determine the appropriate cement, maximum dry density, and optimum moisture content required for construction.
