STABILISATION OF SILTY CLAY SOIL USING CHLORIDE

By TAMADHER T. ABOOD, ANUAR BIN KASA and ZAMRI BIN CHIK

Abstract

The object of this paper is to investigate the effect of adding different chloride compounds including (NaCl, MgCl2, CaCl2) on the engineering properties of silty clay soil. Various amounts of salts (2%, 4%, and 8%) were added to the soil to study the effect of salts on the compaction characteristics, consistency limits and compressive strength. The main findings of this study were that the increase in the percentage of each of the chloride compounds increased the maximum dry density and decrease the optimum moisture content. The liquid limit, plastic limit and plasticity index decreased with the increase in salt content. The unconfinedcompressive strength increased as the salt content increased
