Does anybody has experience in mixing procedure for soil modification with lime using an industrial plant?
We are in a highway construction in a place where there aren't granular materials and we have to use saturated clayey borrow materials in order to conform the embankments, because of the like mud materials the production is slow and we are looking for a procedure to increase it.
Thanks in advance for any advice it can help us.

Thanks for Mr. Foody's response but I believe the origional question was using lime to stabilize soil not fly ash. The Texas DOT and Federal Highways both have specifications and contractor lists if you want to contact them. It is very simple to add lime to the soil in a pug mill(industrial plant?) with a water supply and recompact. It is often practical to add the lime slurry to the soil in place and rotomill(giant rototiller)them together.

For Industrial plant you need to use piles for soil stabilization. because soil stabilization is more useful in pavement construction.
