Soil stabilisation using lime cement columns was developed in Sweden during the 1970s, and the latest work is looking at widening the applications with other kinds of binders and other types of soils. The aim is to establish what materials give improvements particular to a defined application, so that for example it will be possible to specify on the basis of treatment required to produce a deformation acceptable to say a new bridge under construction, rather than just strength improvement.
