Abstract: The paper has focused on studying the ability of using natural pozzolan to combine lime and cement in process of stabilized soil, implementing experimental contents for on-site soil including: grain composition, plastic limit, plasticity index, mineral parts and other common mechanical properties, standard compaction. Followed by experiments for soil, cement and pozzolan stabilized soil mixtures, including standard compaction, compressive strength. A suitable model of physical experiments to simulate and prove lime, cement and pozzolan stabilized soil meets the criteria for making waterproofing materials for earth dams in the Central Highlands
Keywords: Stabilized Soil, Natural Pozzolan, Lime, Cement.

Scope of the Article: Soil-Structure Interaction
