Experimental assessment of subgrade stiffness of lateritic soils treated with crushed waste plastics and ceramics for pavement foundation
(International Journal of Low-Carbon Technologies, 2019)
The assessment of subgrade stiffness of four test soils treated with crushed waste ceramics (CWC) and crushed waste plastics (CWP) has been experimented on under laboratory conditions. There have been recorded failures ...
Scheffe optimization of swelling, California bearing ratio, compressive strength, and durability potentials of quarry dust stabilized soft clay soil
(Materials Science for Energy Technologies, 2019)
Scheffe’s second degree polynomial was used to formulate models for predicting the swelling potential, California bearing ratio, unconfined compressive strength and loss of strength on immersion durability of quarry dust ...
Sorptivity, swelling, shrinkage, compression and durability of quarry dust treated soft soils for moisture bound pavement geotechnics
(Journal of Materials Research and Technology, 2019)
The failure of pavement foundation materials as hydraulically bound materials is a worri-some condition facing pavement infrastructures in the developing world. Capillary action leads to swelling and shrinkage, compressive ...
Generalized Review on EVD and Constraints Simplex Method of Materials Properties Optimization for Civil Engineering
(Civil Engineering Journal, 2019)
Extreme vertex design (EVD) has been adapted to be used in the modeling of the behavior of mixture experiments in civil engineering. This method has been in use since the 1970s and has be prevalent in the field of medical ...
Triaxial and density behaviour of quarry dust based geopolymer cement treated expansive soil with crushed waste glasses for pavement foundation purposes
(International Journal of Pavement Research and Technology, 2019)
The effect of quarry dust based geopolymer cement (QDbGPC) and crushed waste glasses (CWG) on the triaxial and density characteristics of expansive test soil was investigated under laboratory conditions. Quarry dust is a ...
