Effectiveness of polymer for mitigation of expansive soils
The objective of this study was to determine the effectiveness of commercially available polymer treatment as a mitigation technique for expansive soils in transportation applications. Four commercially available polymers were used in this research. A survey of state departments of transportation within the mountain-plains region (Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Wyoming) was conducted to define the state-of-the-practice in expansive soil mitigation. A literature review on expansive soil treatments, with a focus on polymer mitigation, was also performed to establish the ...
