This study was carried out to investigate the strength behavior of cemented sludge reinforced with cornsilk fiber considered as a by-product from corn. Hence, a series of unconfined compression test was conducted at different levels of water, cement, and fiber content. Water contents considered in this study were 40, 50, and 60%; cement content used for sludge stabilization was changed from 5 to 40 kg/m3; meanwhile, fiber content was used at different levels from 5 to 30 kg/m3. In addition, the…
