Abstract

A size effect on the strength of cement-treated soils is studied theoretically using a new statistical model in which a weakest link model and a bundle model are combined. In order to confirm the validity of this method, the unconfined compression and splitting tensile tests were performed. The proposed model is compared with the test results and the previous experimental results of the cement-treated soils. This model expresses not only the size effect on the strength of the specimens with the different volume but also the difference of slenderness ratio in the diameter and height. The influence of slenderness of the specimens is also discussed. The proposed model is applied to cement-treated soil columns is predicted from that of a small size specimen as a function of the coefficient of variance.
