The WIRTGEN manual on soil treatment

Base Layers with hydraulic binders

Soil stabilizers convert subsoils of poor bearing capacity into soils that are highly suitable for placing and compacting. Soil-binder mixtures can be used to achieve a permanent increase in bearing capacity, significantly improve shear strength and considerably reduce settlement behaviour.

The manual on soil treatment and base layers with hydraulic binders not only describes the various standards, specifications, directives and codes of practice but also provides valuable insights into applications technology to ensure the most efficient use of soil stabilizers on the construction site.


The WIRTGEN soil stabilization practical guide is a practical reference work for customers, users and interested third parties. It is available in 5 languages: English, German, French, Spanish and Portuguese (Brazilian).
