Abstract

A series of laboratory tests are performed to investigate the change of water content for quick lime treated dredged clayey soils with different quick lime contents and original water contents of dredged clays. With introducing a new concept of decreasing ratio of water content, the change law of water content of treated soils is obtained. That is, the decreasing ratio of water content has the same linear relationship with quick lime content for different original water contents of dredged soils. In addition, a simple method for predicting the water content of treated soils is proposed; and its effectiveness is verified with the data published in literatures.
