ELASTIC AND VISCOELASTIC BEHAVIOR OF A CHEMICALLY STABILIZED SAND

Samples of clean, fine sand saturated with a sodium silicate grout (mix sample No. 7) were prepared and cured in a moist room for 35 days. Four types of tests were performed on identical samples to investigate their elastic and viscoelastic behavior. Results indicate that the isotropic, linear-elastic constitutive law provides a reasonable approximation for characterizing the chemically stabilized fine sand under moving load. Furthermore, for applied vertical stress levels of less than 50 percent, the mixture may be treated as a linear-viscoelastic medium for computing time-dependent deformation under sustained loading.
