Abstract

In this study, the durability of the fiber-cement-stabilized mud produced from construction sludge was investigated. In order to use the modified soils as lightweight landfill materials, the durability is very important. Therefore, repeated cycle tests of drying and wetting were carried out. It was found that the durability of fiber-cement-stabilized mud is much higher than that of cement-stabilized mud produced by using the conventional method. Furthermore, a theoretical model to estimate the density of fiber-cement-stabilized mud was derived in order to propose a new design system to utilize lightweight landfill materials.
