Tensile strength

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...

The use of thin clayey soil as a liner plays an important role in many geotechnical and geo-environmental engineering applications, such as open channel and reservoir sealant, contaminant barrier etc. Their functional performance and sustainability depend primarily on the desiccation characteristics of these liners and barriers. A number of studies have...

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...
