Abstract:This study examined effect of stabilising lateritic soil with combination of bitumen emulsion and cement. Soil samples were obtained from borrow pits located in Kwali Area Council in Abuja. Three percentages of additives were considered: 4%, 6% and 8%. The bitumen emulsion and cement contents were combined in percentages: 100:0, 75:25, 50:50, 25:75 and 0:100 to form five additives. The stabilized soils and unstabilized soils (control) geotechnical properties such as Unconfined Compressive Strength (U…
