Soil-cement

Stabilized soil with cement has been a widely used solution in geotechnical projects and requires the molding of numerous specimens to investigate their properties in destructive tests, restraining the reuse for other analysis. Also, distinct sample dimension has been utilized in the research without taking this effect into account. Recognizing these ne...

This study investigated the use of the Formation Factor of the material as an alternative way to estimate soil-cement strength involving no destructive tests. This factor is obtained from Archie’s Law and consists of the ratio of pore water electrical conductivity to saturated porous material electrical conductivity, being related to porosity ...

Applying Portland cement to soils is an excellent technique when it is necessary to improve local soil for the construction of stabilized pavement bases and to have a support layer for shallow foundations. Consoli et al. (2007, 2009, 2010) developed a rational dosage methodology for artificially cemented soils based on porosity/ceme...
