Abstract: This study is an overview of previous studies on lime (quick and hydrated) -treated soil. Lime is the
oldest traditional stabilizer used for soil stabilization. The mechanism of soil-lime treatment involves cation
exchange, which leads to the flocculation and agglomeration of soil particles. The high pH environment then causes
a pozzolanic reaction between the free Ca+2 cations and the dissolved silica and alumina. Lime-treated soil
effectively increases the strength, durability and workability of the soil. Such treatment also improves soil
compressibility. A fluctuation behavior was observed on the influence of lime on soil permeability. However, the
factors affecting the permeability of the soil-lime mixture should be extensively studied. Nonetheless, lime treatment
has a number of inherent disadvantages, such as carbonation, sulfate attack and environment impact. Magnesium
oxide/hydroxide are thus proposed as a suitable alternative stabilizer to overcome at least some of the disadvantages
of using lime in soil stabilization.
