Engineering Properties of Unused and Cement Stabilized Used Lateritic Soils
(University of Ilorin, 2013)
The practice of building local housing units with laterite is common in Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Nigeria. This practice helps to reduce the rising cost of building construction. This paper investigates the engineering properties ...
Evaluation of Rice Husk Ash Stabilized Lateritic Soil as Sub-base in Road Construction
(Sciencedomain international, 2015)
Laboratory experiments were conducted and the results were analyzed for rice husk ash (RHA) stabilization of laterite soils for utilization as sub base materials in road construction. The index properties classified the ...
Engineering Properties of used and unused soil in a developing country
(University of Ilorin, 2012-07)
It is difficult to assess the strength parameters of lateritic soils from existing literature due to variability in test methods, degree of compaction and soil characteristics. This paper describes some significant engineering ...
