Orthogonal Test and Multi-Element Linear Regression Analysis of Compressive Strength of Nanometer Silicon Cemented Soil
Cement-stabilized soil has been widely used to ground treatment, tracing of foundation pit, water resistance. Additives in cemented soil play an important role in improving its basic properties of cemented soil. In this paper, a new kind of additive, Nanometer Silicon Oxide (SiO2-x), was incorporated into cemented soil. Undrained triaxial compression tests were performed to discuss the reinforced effect of the nanometer silicon on the strength property of the cemented soil. Four main factors that influence the compressive strength of the nanometer silicon cemented soil (NCS) are considered: cement content, nanometer material content, confining pressure, and water\cement ratio. Based on orthogonal tests, the paper analyzed quantitatively the main influence factors of the compression strength of NCS and presented the optimum mix combination. A linear regression model for the compression strength were proposed. Finally, some conclusions have been achieved.
