FLY ASH CONCRETE CONTAINING PETROLEUM CONTAMINATED SOILS

This is an attempt to apply stabilization/solidification techniques to PCS (petroleum contaminated soils) to bind the hydrocarbons in a structure formed by cement, fly ash, and aggregates to produce a construction material suitable for bulk applications. It was found that the addition of PCS reduces both the compressive and flexural strengths of concrete. However, the obtained strength is adequate for structural applications. Concrete containing higher PCS/sand replacement ratio develops lower strength. Given longer curing time, the fly ash presence can reduce such loss. The permeability coefficient of PCS is slightly higher than control.
