Laboratory and Field Trials for Deep Dry Soil Mixing to Stabilize a Live Railway Embankment Across Thrandeston Bog

This paper describes the laboratory and field testing undertaken for the design and construction of a dry soil mixing scheme for Thrandeston Bog railway embankment stabilisation. The results of laboratory mixed samples are presented for varying quantities of cement binder mixed with peat and clay. Field test results from Pull Out and Push In Resistance Testing in soilmix columns are also presented and the results compared for the varying cement binder dosages in both peat and clay. It is concluded that replication of the mixing energy used in the preparation of laboratory mixed materials is a critical factor in predicting field strengths, whilst the water cement ratio is significant factor in the resulting soilmix column strength.
