This paper presents the preliminary results of experimental research into the stabilization of clayey sediments dredged from the Port of Taranto (Italy) with cement and (or) lime. First, the physical properties of the natural sediments are briefly described and compared with those of the same sediments when treated with different additives and cured up to 4 years. In particular, the effect of the treatment on the soil plasticity properties is originally analyzed in terms of plasticity paths. Then, the influence of the different stabilizing agents on the compression behaviour of the dredged soil is analyzed and methods for quickly predicting the admixed-soil behaviour are presented.

Abstract

This paper presents the preliminary results of experimental research into the stabilization of clayey sediments dredged from the Port of Taranto (Italy) with cement and (or) lime. First, the physical properties of the natural sediments are briefly described and compared with those of the same sediments when treated with different additives and cured up to 4 years. In particular, the effect of the treatment on the soil plasticity properties is originally analyzed in terms of plasticity paths. Then, the influence of the different stabilizing agents on the compression behaviour of the dredged soil is analyzed and methods for quickly predicting the admixed-soil behaviour are presented.
