Abstract

In this paper, expansive soil is mixed with CKD in different proportions, and unconfined compressive strength test was conducted on the specimens with a certain initial water content and dry density. Unconfined compressive strength test were also conducted for specimens maintained for different curing ages separately, with 10% CKD content ratio, to investigate the effect of both CKD content ratio and curing age on the strength property. It was shown that with the increase of CKD content ratios, unconfined compressive strength was first increased, and then decreased. With the growth of the curing age, unconfined compressive strength of the specimen increased exponentially, tending towards stability after about 28 days.
