CEE 598 SSO - Transportation Soil Stabilization
This graduate course aims to introduce the theory, techniques and practical applications of chemical and mechanical stabilization of geomaterials soils and aggregates/rocks used in the construction and maintenance of transportation facilities, i.e., roads, railroads, and airfields. Chemical stabilization includes the use of chemicals, admixtures such as lime and fly ash, and emulsions as compaction aids to soils, as binders and water repellents, and as a means of modifying the behavior of soil. Mechanical stabilization deals with the use of non-biodegradable reinforcement, such as geosynthetics and fibers, of geomaterials to improve strength.
