Land & Soil Stabilization | Civil & Infrastructure
Land and soil stabilization is important to be executed, and can use several techniques to carry out so, including mechanical, physical, chemical and biological. Weak soil can use either or combined methods to improve and maintain in term of stability to reach the goal from an engineering perspective. Pozzolanic reactions between soil particles and stabilizers (binders) can make stabilized soft soil quality improved. This soil stabilization process enables permanent strength obtained in terms of long-term, it is also good to have shear strength enhancement through stabilization accomplishment and the overall soil bearing capacity. Few of the soil stabilization types are good to know further, which consist of chemical, bitumen, line, cement and more. The cement strength will increase when the content of cement, curing period, density and curing temperature. There are many ways to improve soil properties, including methods such as surface compaction, soil reinforcement, grouting and injection, vibration method, drainage method, geotextile and geomembrane, chemical stabilization, pre-compression and consolidation as well as many others that might be labour-intensive.
Soil offers a crucial service host for the planet and people, it provides food onto our plates, protects everyone from getting flood, combat drought and purifies our water. It is also essential to climate change tackling, storing vast carbon amounts, and healthier soil creates healthier food security and food chain source. Soil is a regulator for water supplies, habitat for soil organisms, plant growth’s medium and base, recycler of raw material, and medium for landscaping and engineering. Twelve soil texture classes as pr identified by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) sandy loam, sandy clay loam, loamy sand, clay, clay loam, silt, silty clay loam, sand, loam, silt loam, silty clay and sandy clay. Soil erosion occurs when the dirt is exposed to tough wind, flowing water and heavy rain. Soil is highly vulnerable to erosion due to a lot of human activities, especially land clearing as well as mass farming. Properties of soil such as chemistry, porosity, texture, colour and structure are determined by the combinations of air, water, organic matter and mineral particles. The majority of soils have pH values ranging between 3.5 and 10 and areas with higher rainfall would have natural pH of soils within the range of 5 to 7, while an area that has the drier condition will be 6.5 to 9. The neutral pH value of soil is 6.5 to 7.5.
When the soil has additional work to be done, soil compacting must be carried out. It is where soil particles will be pressed together, reducing the pore space between them. Depending on the compacting level, a heavier version of soil compacting will have few huge pores, lesser total pore volume and also greater density, it will also decrease the water infiltration rate and drainage. There are possibilities where soil quality might be affected during and after compacting by inexperienced contractors, therefore, it is crucial to select someone who can deliver and provide after-sale service. Engineering perspective, stabilization would mean adding in or mixing admixture that has a stabilizing agent pre-compaction, modifying the chemical make-up of soil and more. There are many soil stabilization contractors who can also do civil, infrastructure, land stabilization and soil stabilization. There are many lands on the earth that need to fine-tune since different projects would have to custom make in advance on the earthwork part. Do more research before confirming anything, to protect everyone.
