Experimental Study of Stress-Strain Characteristics of the Fly Ash Blended with Curing Agent
The stress-strain characteristics of the fly ash blended with curing agent was studied using uniaxial and triaxial compression tests. Curing agent JNS-2 was used as the stabilizing agents in sample preparation. Four curing agent JNS-2 contents of 3%, 6%, 9% and 12% were selected for sample preparation. UU triaxial compression tests were conducted in a range of confining pressures from 100 kPa to 300 kPa. The experimental results obtained from the laboratory tests showed that curing age, mixture ratio, compaction degree and confining pressures had significant influence on the shape of curves. Uniaxial stress-strain test results demonstrated that the latter strength and deformation characteristics of the fly ash blended with curing agent grew little and with the increase of curing agent amount and compaction factor, the curve of uniaxial stress-strain changed significantly. On the other hand, triaxial stress-strain test results indicted that the failure strain showed a partial negative growth trend with the increase of curing agent amount, and the failure stress showed a partial positive growth trend with the increase of curing agent amount. When the curve was at high confining pressure, it showed hardening type, when at low confining pressure it showed softening type.
