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...

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...

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
