Model Test Research on Bearing Behavior of Improved Over-Wet Soil
According to the similarity theory, this paper presents a similar model with the similar geometric load and boundary condition to analyze the difference between untreated over-wet soil in Ya’an and improved over-wet soil. The test results show: the bearing capacity of improved soil is enhanced; the settlement of improved soil is much less than which of unimproved soil; the water stability of improved soil is strengthened. These means we have achieved the purpose of improving over-wet soil and the ash mixing method is a feasible means for dealing with over-wet soil.
