|In this study the effect of sodium hydroxide on the strength of clayey soil-cement mixtures was investigated. Clay soils from three various locations of Kirkuk governorate namely Erbil, Laylan and Hawija check points were used.
The effect of cement content, curing age, curing temperature and concentration of sodium hydroxide on the strength of soil-cement mixtures were investigated, through carrying out unconfined compressive strength, Triaxial compression and C.B.R tests.
It was found that the use of sodium hydroxide markedly improves the strength of soil-cement mixtures. The addition of about 1% of sodium hydroxide by weight of soil could reduce about 5% of cement content by weight of soil required to stabilize the soils effectively.
