Soil stabilization is a process of improving the physical and chemical properties of soil in order to make it more suitable for construction, or other practical uses. This can be done through compaction, adding stabilizers like cement, bitumen, lime, or other materials, or by changing the water content of the soil.
The end goal of this process is to produce a soil that is strong enough to support whatever load it is expected to bear, and to prevent it from shifting or eroding due to environmental factors.
