Shear Strength Enhancement of Cemented Reinforced Sand: Role of Cement Content on the Macro-Mechanical Behavior

affected by water content, cement content and curing time. – The increase in the water content significantly increases the shear strength of the sand-cement mixture due to the hydration of the cement, and reduces the deformability of the sand-cement mixtures (by increasing the dilatant character). – The addition of cement in the sand increases the shear strength considerably; it not only improves the shear strength of the soil, but also provides diversity in the resistance against the deformations imposed loads, which can result in a minimization of expansion
