Beneficial use of off-specification fly ashes to increase the shear strength and stiffness of expansive soil-rubber (ESR) mixtures
The potential use of off-specification fly ashes to increase the shear strength and stiffness of an expansive soil-rubber (ESR) mixture was investigated systematically in this study. The off-specification fly ashes used included a high sulfur content fly ash and a high carbon content fly ash. A standard Class C fly ash was also used as a control fly ash to develop a basis for comparison of the effects of the off-specification fly ashes. The ESR mixture consisted of high-plasticity clay blended with 20% 6.7-mm granulated rubber (by weight). The fly ash content required to develop pozzolanic ...
