A review of geotechnical behavior of stabilized soils: Design and analysis considerations
2013 (English)Report (Other academic)
Utilization of stabilization technology for improving the engineering properties of soft soils and sediments for structural backfill, such as land reclamation is increasing. Mass stabilization solidification provides a comprehensive technology for improving the geotechnical properties of the problematic soils for civil engineering applications; hence, solving the problem of scarcity of natural resources, meanwhile, providing a sustainable solution for management of contaminated sediments.In geotechnical context, stabilized soils might pose considerable challenges to engineers during the design process, which include obtaining the design parameters, selecting the constitutive model and evaluating loading condition. In many cases, the traditional design approaches are utilized to obtain mechanical parameters for geotechnical design and analysis of structures to be found on in-situ stabilized mass. Stiffness and strength properties obtained from laboratory test results on such materials may differ significantly from those attained during the in-situ stabilization.The purpose of this literature study is to gain insight into mechanical behaviors of in-situ stabilized soils for geotechnical applications. The focus is on design and analysis considerations for structures founded on such soil.
