Rapid development in Malaysia has led to urban development encroaching into the peat land area. Nevertheless, the physical properties of peat which is regarded as a problematic ground has prompted many studies on various methods of stabilization. The used of byproduct material then become a need for a sustainable environment. This paper presents the results of the unconfined compressive test of stabilized peat by admixture method. A constant composition of pond ash as byproduct material (10… Expand
Strength of Treated Peat Soil with Pond Ash—Hydrated Lime Subjected to Soaking Time
Rapid development in Malaysia has encroached to the area which are considered as problematic ground like peat land. However, strength characteristics of natural peat soil need some improvement withExpand
Physio-Chemical Properties, Consolidation, and Stabilization of Tropical Peat Soil Using Traditional Soil Additives — A State of the Art Literature Review
Peat is formed by the degradation of plants and animals in the lack of oxygen and is widely known for its very weak geotechnical characteristics. This is the reason to be considered as an unsuitableExpand
Physical and Geotechnical Properties of Tropical Peat and Its Stabilization
The chapter presents the physical and engineering properties of tropical peat treated with various types of stabilizers. Quick lime (QL), fly ash (FA), and ordinary Portland cement (OPC) were used asExpand
Peat modification integrating Geopolymer and fly ash
Peat is known of its high compressibility, low shear strength, natural moisture content and long-term settlement. This indicates that peat is problematic, and it is necessary to improve the soil soExpand
Physico-geotechnical properties of peat and its stabilisation
This paper describes the physical and geotechnical properties of tropical peat treated with different types of stabilisers. Fly ash (FA), quicklime (QL) and ordinary Portland cement (OPC) were usedExpand
Peat Soil Improvement Method Using Woven Bamboo and Cerucuk
