Short summary of activities and expertiseThe research project focuses on the stabilization of problematic soft clay deposits with economical and environmentally friendly stabilization agents. The stabilization aims to improve the stability of critical infrastructure (CI) and reduce the emission of CO2. The proposed project will have the following key activities: • Signing of agreements with POLONEZ BIS and host institution • Employing project researchers such as co-investigators, Master's and Ph.D. students, etc. • Experimental development: o Collection of soft soil samples and carbon-negative stabilization agents such as bio-ash, geopolymers, etc. o Conducting geotechnical and microstructural laboratory tests such as:  Identification tests (grain size analysis, Atterberg limits, Specific gravities)  Mechanical tests (UCS, Consolidation, triaxial).  Chemical, spectroscopy, microscopy, (XRD, EDX, SEM, XRF, etc. ) • Data analyses and documentation • Communication of Research outputs through presentations, conferences, valorizations, workshops, publications, and reports. Expertise: The following fields are relevant to the project: • Civil engineering • Geotechnical engineering • Construction materials engineering • Materials science and engineering/ Chemical engineering
Relevant publications and/or research/innovation products1- Stabilization and Modelling of soft clays with PVD 2- Statistical and uncertainty analyses of soft soils settlements 3- Probabilistic analyses of bridge foundations on undrained clay 4- Correlation of CBR and DCP for subgrade soils 5- Characterization of expansive and lateritic tropical soils
