An Experimental Study on Engineering Properties of Rubber Particles-Improved Fly Ash Soil
In this paper, by studying the engineering properties of rubber particles-improved fly ash soil, the authors provide technical parameters for setting up cold-resistance layer in the seasonal frozen zone. In the experiment, rubber particles are mixed into the fly ash soil by mass of 0%, 1%, 2%, 3%, 5% and 7% and unconfined compressive strength testing, frost heave test, insulation test and thermal conductivity test. By analyzing the test results, the authors drew the conclusion that fly ash soil improved by rubber particles has a high compressive strength, a small amount of frost heave, good insulation performance, small thermal conductivity coefficient.Therefore, improved fly ash soil with rubber particles is one of the preferred materials to set up the cold resistance layer in seasonal frost zone.
