  • Ageing effects on the small-strain stiffness of a bio-treated compacted soil 

    Morales, Laura; Romero Morales, Enrique Edgar; Jommi, Cristina; Garzón Garzón, Eduardo; Giménez, Antonio (2015-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    The effect of ageing on the small-strain shear stiffness of compacted silty-clayey sand following a ‘soft’ biological treatment is discussed. Samples were prepared by static compaction, adding urea-degrading bacteria to ...

    The paper describes an experimental study aimed at evaluating the evolution of some mechanical properties, specifically small-strain stiffness and unconfined compressive strength, induced by ageing after a microbiological ...
  • Feasibility of a soft biological improvement of natural soils used in compacted linear earth construction
