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...

The sustainable use of industrial wastes such as coal fly ash and carbide lime is an effective procedure to enhance the long-term performance of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) under extreme freeze-thaw and wet-dry conditions. This study evaluates the impact of lime content (L) and dry unit weight (gd) on the durability and long-term performance of compacted RA...

A set of crosswise-loaded flexible piles was tested in binder stabilised top sand layers embedded in lightly bonded residual soil. Slope indicators were used to measure horizontal displacements in free-headed flexible piles during all loading stages. The geometry of the cement stabilised top sand layer surrounding the piles varied from about 2 to 4 times the pil...
