<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">Laboratory compaction of soils is an important aspect in the selection of materials for earthwork construction. Owing to time constraints and concern for depleting resources, it becomes imperative that empirical relationships would be developed to predict compaction parameters,...

<p>The elastic constants obtained through conventional destructive (triaxial and resilience) tests can present great variability, even for soils with the same classification. Thus, a test is necessary to determine the elastic constants of soils in a reliable and replicable way. The ultrasonic technique is used to characterize rock and several construction ...

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