The main goal of this paper is to evaluate the chemical and mineralogical composition of a compacted residual clay soil with the addition of Portland cement and under different compaction conditions to observe and to understand the chemical and mineralogical changes that these structures undergo. Results of chemical and mineralogical composition of compacted spe...

<p>The pozzolanic reactions, responsible for the resistance of soil-lime blends, are endothermic. As such, increasing the curing temperature in turn increases the strength of lime-stabilized soil. Recent research has shown that there is a maximum limit to the resistance of a specimen, based on its curing time. This study aims to predict the maximum tensile...

Considering the increasing incidence of cyclic loadings on engineering structures and the enhancement of design analysis, soil testing under cyclic conditions has renewed its importance. Laboratory tests are conducted to simulate as near as possible field conditions. Assumed conditions aid on the choice of the tests to be conducted in order to determinate the re...

<p>The study evaluated, through a series of permeability and diffusion tests, the hydraulic and the attenuation behavior of a compacted clayey soil, with and without the addition of Portland cement (0 to 2%). To evaluate the diffusive response, the specimens were subjected to a vertical static load (100 to 500 kPa), simulating the action of a waste mass, a...
