Soil stabilisation is defined as a technique to improve the engineering characteristics in order to improve the parameters such as shear strength, compressibility, density, hydraulic conductivity. There are many techniques that can be used for different purposes by enhancing some aspects of soil behaviour and improve the strength and properties of soil. One of the cheapest techniques is by using Polyurethane grout, which is workable for construction and enhances the performance of soil… Expand
Strength for Modified Polyurethane with Modified Sand
The Polyurethane grout is an effective method used for improving the soils stabilization without disturbing the original soil structure, which is workable for construction and enhances theExpand
Improvement of strength characteristics for sandy soils by polypropylene fibers (PPF)
Sandy soil contains many geotechnical problems, including high permeability, less shear strength, sand dunes, and liquefaction. Therefore, it is necessary to stabilize the sandy soil to improve itsExpand
Mechanical behavior of polymer stabilized sand under different temperatures
Abstract In this study, the mechanical behavior of a polyurethane (PU) polymer-sand mixture was investigated by performing a series of uniaxial compression (UC) and direct tensile (DT) tests atExpand
Improving the strength of weak soil using polyurethane grouts: A review
Abstract The recent need to develop infrastructure, driven by global population growth is forcing societies to construct on any soil type available within their vicinity including weak soils.Expand
Synthesis and application of a novel waterborne polyurethane emulsion for sand fixation
Desertification is one of the severe ecological and environmental issues in the world today. Sand fixation against wind erosion is an effective solution to the problem. In the present study, a novelExpand
Evaluating the toxicity of polyurethane during marine clay stabilisation
The hazardousness of PU during the stabilisation of marine clay was investigated by testing its reactivity, ignitability, corrosivity and physical properties, and it is revealed that the quantity of heavy metals present in PU is far below the regulatory limits. Expand
Enhancing performance of infill masonry with latex modified mortar subjected to cyclic load
Abstract During the times of eathquakes, reinforced concrete (RC) frames with infill masonry generally fail due to reasons like diagonal tension, shear, corner crushing, etc. Bond failure is aExpand
Strength of palm kernel oil-based polyurethane foam/resin as alternative method for ground improvement
Polyurethane has widely been used as a ground improvement for several years. The advantages of using polyurethane in ground improvement cannot be denied. Polyurethane foam is a very flexible andExpand
