Abstract

Two soil stabilization treatments were performed on highly expansive clay in Fort Sam Houston San Antonio, TX, to reduce the potential for swell. Lime slurry pressure injection is considered primarily a preswell treatment with some clay alteration. Chemical injection using a proprietary potassium based chemical is considered to alter the clay. Both treatments effectively reduced the potential for swell.

Chemical and Lime Stabilization of Expansive Clay

St. Louis, Missouri

Two soil stabilization treatments were performed on highly expansive clay in Fort Sam Houston San Antonio, TX, to reduce the potential for swell. Lime slurry pressure injection is considered primarily a preswell treatment with some clay alteration. Chemical injection using a proprietary potassium based chemical is considered to alter the clay. Both treatments effectively reduced the potential for swell.
