Collapsible behaviour of loessoid soils in response to water content change is a worldwide problem. These soils are named problematic soils; they can generally be characterised as poor-quality materials. They usually have the potential to show undesirable engineering behaviour. Stabilisation is commonly used to improve the mechanical properties of these problematic soils.The main improvements aimed in the stabilization of collapsible soils are: reduction of supplementary settlement to wetting, increase of shear strength, reduction of permeability. The paper aimed to analyse the geotechnical characteristics of loessoid soils and to present the main improvement methods of these soils.
