Soil Stabilizing Analysis by Weight


*For best results the soil particle size to be evenly graded. * Lab test determines strength/dosage.

To reduce the fines content when it is greater than the  “Optimum” recycled materials and or industrial waste eg crushed construction waste, asphalt, crushed glass, volcanic material, rubber crumb or encapsulated material such as sulphur/slag etc can be used.

This will reduce the dosage rate of AGB required as per the above content and void ratio graph.

VARIABLE EXAMPLES: (300mm layer per sq mtr)
210kg X 0.063   +   240kg X 2.0mm   +   150kg X 10.0mm    Total weight per cub mtr  2000kg
210kg X 0.063   +   240kg X 0.15mm +   150kg X 20.0mm    Total weight per cub mtr  2000kg

Soil Analysis ON site Testing

  1. Use a  cylindrical plastic measuring container.
  2. Fill the container half full with water.
  3. Obtain a 0.5 kg sample of the subsoil to be stabilised.
  4. Remove any stone larger than 25mm
  5. Place the subsoil into the measuring container, to half the depth of the water, and stir vigorously.
  6. Place the container on a level surface and allow the soil to settle.
  7. When the water is clear measure the total height of the subsoil.
  8. Measure the height of each layer.
    1. Aggregate/stone at the bottom of the container
    2. Coarse Sand above the Aggregate.
    3. Fine sand/soil above the coarse sand.
    4. Clay/silt above the sand, this is normally lighter in colour.If the mixture stays cloudy for an extended period of time this normally indicates a high level of clay.
  9. Ideal mix is 35% fines and no stone larger than 20% of the layer depth being treated.
  10. Ensure that the moisture level is correct before compacting Aggrebind stabilised soil.
