Statistics and Analysis of Influential Factors on Shear Strength of Reinforced Saline Soil with Wheat Straw and Lime
As one of complex body, the strength of reinforced lime-soil with wheat straw was influenced by many factors. In order to gain quantitative contributed proportion, traxial compression tests of reinforced lime-soil, which took some factors like reinforced length, reinforced ratio and consolidation in account, were carried out by orthogonal design, and then evaluated by methods of range analysis and principal component analysis. Results are as follows. (1) Contributed proportion of consolidation is the highest, while, successively, of reinforce ratio and of reinforced length. Consolidation has the positive contribution to cohesion which the correlation coefficient can be up to 0.81, however, reinforced ratio takes negative contribution and the correlation coefficient is (-0.71). (2) The optimal reinforced condition of wheat straw is 20 mm in length and 0.25% in ratio as to the sample diameter of 61.8mm. (3) Results of principal component analysis and range analysis are both corresponded with that of experiment. These two kinds of statistics analysis methods are suitable in the domain of reinforced soil.
