Lime/Cement Column Stabilised Soil - A New Model for settlement calculation
Paper i proceeding, 2005

A new model for calculation of settlements for an embankment on lime/cement stabilised clay is presented. The model can be regarded as a development of the current Swedish practice, which is based upon a simplified model, adopted in the computer program Limeset. The goal has been to incorporate recent years experience and research in a qualitative and realistic way. The model is based on the assumption that the deformation properties of the natural as well as the stabilised clay can be modelled in a conventional way. Hence, the development is to give a realistic description of the interaction between these two parts of the soil. A notable feature of this is to describe the stress distribution in the soil in a simple, yet relevant way.
