This paper reports a laboratory investigation aimed at evaluating the potential of polymer binders to stabilize pavement subgrades in Qatar. The conclusions regarding the impact of the polymer stabilizers are based on comparisons with selected physical, chemical, mechanical, and microstructural properties of natural Qatari subgrade soil and soils stabilized with the traditional standard, portland cement (PC). The results demonstrate that the polymer binders modify the Qatari subgrade soils… CONTINUE READING
