Abstract

The mechanical properties of sandy soil can be effectively improved by the incorporation of water-based polymer and glass fibers. In order to study the reinforcement effects of a type of water-based organic polymer and fiber glass on sand, three strength tests (unconfined compression test, direct shear test and tensile test) and scanning electron microscopy were carried out. A series of polymer content, fiber content and dry density were selected for the tests. The results revealed that the composite reinforcement of water-based organic polymer and fiber glass can improve the strength. With an increase in polymer content and fiber content, the unconfined compression strength, the cohesion, and the tensile strength increase. The internal friction angles maintain a relatively stable state. All three strength properties increase with an increase in dry density. The results can be considered as the reference for sand reinforced engineering. View Full-Text
