Abstract Alkali contamination of soils results in repeated structural failure when exposed. Though the effects of alkali on different soils have been investigated in recent years, a systematic research approach aimed at establishing swell behavior in non-swelling kaolinitic clays when exposed continuously with varying concentrations of alkali solution as pore fluid and its micro-level investigation is not well documented. Series of one-dimensional free swell tests and micro-level studies (XRD… CONTINUE READING
