Laboratory tests were conducted to evaluate the performance of cement stabilized “skeleton-dense structure” aggregate and conventional “suspended-dense structure” aggregate. In this study, both of the aggregates above were stabilized by cement with different cement content (2%, 3%, 4%, 5% and 6%). Performances of the prepared specimens were studied in terms of compaction property, 7 day unconfined compressive strength (UCS), thermal shrinkage coefficient and 30 min erosion quantity. Results indicated that the maximum dry density of cement stabilized “skeleton-dense structure” aggregate is bigger than that of cement stabilized “suspended-dense structure” aggregate slightly. On the contrary, the optimum moisture content of the former is slightly smaller than that of the latter one. Along with the increase of cement content, the 7 day UCS and thermal shrinkage coefficient of cement stabilized two aggregates were all increase, and 30 min erosion quantity of cement stabilized two aggregates were all decrease. At the same cement content level, the 7 day UCS of cement stabilized “skeleton-dense structure” aggregate is greater than that of cement stabilized “suspended-dense structure” aggregate, and the thermal shrinkage coefficient and erosion quantity in 30 min of the former is smaller than that of the latter.
