Keywords:Stabilized, treated, clay, Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS), DTM, cement
This systematic literature review investigates the stabilization of marine clay soil using demolished tile waste. The study adopts the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis) method to comprehensively analyze existing research in this area.The utilization of waste materials for soil stabilization has gained significant attention due to environmental concerns and sustainability objectives. In this review, we explore the effectiveness of using demolished tile waste as a stabilizer for marine clay soil. The analysis reveals that different types of waste materials exhibit varying degrees of improvement in the soil's properties. The results demonstrate a consistent increase in shear strength after stabilization, indicating the suitability of demolished tile waste as a stabilizing agent for soft clay soils. Interestingly, the highest strength is not obtained at the largest additive quantities. Instead, most research papers report a peak in strength at specific additive proportions and curing time, followed by a decline. This phenomenon occurs when the hydration process is complete, and large lumps form between the clay particles. Furthermore, the size of the additive also plays a crucial role in enhancing the strength of problematic soils. Optimal additive size leads to better distribution and interaction with the clay particles, contributing to improved stabilization results. This review provides valuable insights into the potential of utilizing demolished tile waste for enhancing the engineering properties of marine clay soil. The findings highlight the importance of carefully selecting the type and quantity of additives to achieve the desired stabilization outcomes.
