tensile strength
<p>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...

<p>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...

<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...
