Swelling

The aim of the current study is to investigate the influence of consecutive wetting and drying cycles on the free swelling and swelling pressure properties of a potentially expansive soil. The investigated sample consisting of high-plasticity inorganic clay with high consistency-limit values and extremely high swelling potential. The adopted methodology...

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...
