    Abstract

    The effect of 14 parameters, associated with specimen preparation, handling, and testing, and with soil characteristics, was evaluated experimentally for laboratory prepared specimens of chemically grounted sands. Over 200 unconfined compression tests were conducted, and results are presented and comparisons are made in terms of unconfined compressive strength and tangent modulus at 50% of maximum stress. Curing environment, curing time, specimen size, grain size, and grain size distribution are the parameters that affect significantly the observed mechanical behavior of grouted sands. The results of this study were used in the development of ASTM Laboratory Preparation of Chemically Grouted Soil Specimens for Obtaining Design Strength Parameters (D 4320).
