STUDY OF THE IMMEDIATE AND LONG-TERM STRENGTH OF A CEMENT MODIFIED COHESIVE SOIL

ADDITION OF CEMENT TO A FINE GRAINED SOIL CHANGES ITS SURFACE AND MATRIX CHARACTERISTICS. IN THE PRESENT STUDY AN ATTEMPT HAS BEEN MADE TO EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF CEMENT ON THE SHEAR STRENGTH PARAMETERS IMMEDIATELY AFTER ADDITION OF CEMENT AND ALSO AFTER INITIAL SET HAS TAKEN PLACE. APART FROM THE EFFECT OF CEMENT, INFLUENCE OF INITIAL SOIL STRUCTURE ON SHEAR PARAMETERS HAS ALSO BEEN STUDIED. IT IS OBSERVED THAT THE VALUE OF THE ANGLE OF INTERNAL FRICTION INCREASES RAPIDLY ON ADDITION OF CEMENT TO A CLAYEY SOIL WITH INITIAL SOIL STRUCTURE AS FLOCCULENT, WHEREAS THE VALUE OF COHESION INCREASES PROGRESSIVELY. WHEN INITIAL SOIL STRUCTURE IS DISPERSED, THE VALUE OF COHESION INCREASES WITH CURING TIME. NO APPRECIABLE INCREASE IN ANGLE OF INTERNAL FRICTION IS OBSERVED. /AUTHOR/
