Unconfined compressive strength
<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>Regular soil improvement techniques customarily involve the use of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) despite the environmental issues related to the production process of such material. Hence, the establishment of alternative binders through the use of industrial and/or urban waste might be an option to overcome part of those problems. For this, a 2<em&...

<p>This paper addresses the influence of the static and dynamic laboratory compaction procedures in the compaction<br /> curves and mechanical strength of two residual soils from the Zona da Mata Norte, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. The<br /> laboratory testing program was directed to: (i) two gneissic residual soils, respectively, with...

<p>The ash of rice rind is a pozzolanic material that reacts with the calcium hydroxide (Ca (OH)2) forming bonding composites, when finely worn out and in water presence. Considering this behavior, the objective of the present work was to evaluate the potential use of this residue in the enrichment of the content of pozzolanic materials of a tropical soil ...
