on increasing the rigidity of the soil. Figure 10 illustrates the evolution of vertical deformations as the functions of horizontal deformations. It is noted that the increase in the cement content and the cure time considerably reduces the deformability of the mixtures that is represented by reducing the contractiveness character, and having a dilatantcharacter after around 2 mm of horizontal displacement. These results are in perfect agreement with those found by Zillur Rabbi et al. (2011) .
