Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The behavior for the artificially cemented granular soils is investigated in this paper. Blast furnace slag cement is used in the test and compared with ordinary Portland cement. As the cement content increases, both peak strength and initial stiffness increase. Besides, cemented soils are required significantly larger number of cycles to cause initial liquefaction and 5 % to 10 % shearing strain cyclic mobility under cyclic loading condition and for a given cyclic stress ratio. Cementation increased the shear modulus and/or decreased damping ratio of sand under high strain amplitudes in variety confining pressures. The performances of blast furnace slag cement are regarded as well as ordinary Portland cement, even better.
