Direct shear test
<p>Chemical stabilization for mining tailings is a promising alternative to enable their use as construction materials. For this, it is necessary to evaluate the behavior of these composites to ensure minimum design requirements. This research aims to demonstrate that an addition of 15% of polymeric solution content, corresponding to 6% of polymer by taili...

<p>The present research investigates the reinforcing effect of recycled polypropylene (R-PP) fibers on a compacted clayey lateritic soil in different compaction degrees. R-PP fibers of 12 mm length were mixed with the soil in the contents of 0.1 and 0.25% of soil dry weight. Unconfined compression strength tests (UCS), direct shear tests and indirect tensi...

<p>This paper presents a program of direct shear tests in soil reinforced with geogrids, carried out with large-scale<br /> equipment. A woven geogrid was placed in sandy soil and positioned with different inclinations inside the shear box. The<br /> strength parameters of the soil-geogrid interface were obtained from shear tests with the geogr...
