Expansive soils can cause large-scale damage to the infrastructure. Soil stabilization with Portland cement and lime has been widely utilized as a solution to this problem. However, these stabilizers are non-renewable and energy-intensive. Alkali-activated binders are alternatives with lower carbon dioxide emissions. This research evaluated an expansive...

Water jet-driving technique has been shown as a viable practice for driving prefabricated piles in resistant soil layers. However, this technique is also associated with the reduction of load capacity of piles. Along these lines, the use of reams in prefabricated concrete piles improves their mechanical performance. The main objective of this research w...

Fiber-reinforcement has been reported as an effective and cost-attractive technique to improve the mechanical behavior of cemented soils. However, the dosage methodologies for these mixtures are still limited, especially regarding dynamic loading. The objective of this research was to analyze the dynamic response and strength behavior of fiber-reinforce...
