The decreasing number of places suitable for constructing buildings forces people to creatively develop newer methods of soil reinforcement. One of these methods is the deep soil mixing. This technology has been firstly developed and applied in Japan in the 1970s. Initially, it was used to create DSM (Deep Soil Mixing) columns. In the subsequent years, it was also developed in Scandinavia. Over time, the deep mixing technology was modified and developed, and in addition to the wet method, also the dry method was started to be used, while in addition to the cement binder, also lime binders and fly ashes were used. Technologies consisting of the deep mixing of cement with soil are very popular due to the wide range of applications and relatively low implementation costs. The method of Mass Stabilization (MS) is a soil reinforcement method that is analogical to DSM and it consists of mixing large volumes of soil with cement. This article describes the method of dry Mass Stabilization of organic soils. It cites the analyzed laboratory tests of soil-cement material manufactured in MS technology. The tests included the creation of 140 material samples, and subsequently the performance of compression strength test on them, along with the registration of stress path. The main aspect of these tests consisted of increase in the primary deformation modulus over time, depending on the amount of applied cement. Also, an example of the project to strengthen the layer of aggregate mud under the floor in the hall is demonstrated. The reinforcement was implemented in the MS technology.
