Viability of calcinated wastepaper sludge ash geopolymer in the treatment of road pavement subgrade materials (2023)
Journal Article
Jeremiah, J. J., Abbey, S. J., Booth, C. A., & Eyo, E. U. (2024). Viability of calcinated wastepaper sludge ash geopolymer in the treatment of road pavement subgrade materials. Transportation Geotechnics, 44, Article 101165. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.trgeo.2023.101165

Problematic ground conditions constituted by weak or expansive clays are commonly encountered in construction projects and require some form of chemical treatment such as lime and cement to re-engineer their performance. However, in the light of the... Read More about Viability of calcinated wastepaper sludge ash geopolymer in the treatment of road pavement subgrade materials.

Wet–dry cycles and microstructural characteristics of expansive subgrade treated with sustainable cementitious waste materials (2023)
Journal Article
Abbey, S. J., Amakye, S. Y., Eyo, E. U., Booth, C. A., & Jeremiah, J. J. (2023). Wet–dry cycles and microstructural characteristics of expansive subgrade treated with sustainable cementitious waste materials. Materials, 16(8), 3124. https://doi.org/10.3390/ma16083124

This work presents an experimental study on the physico-mechanical and microstructural characteristics of stabilised soils and the effect of wetting and drying cycles on their durability as road subgrade materials. The durability of expansive road su... Read More about Wet–dry cycles and microstructural characteristics of expansive subgrade treated with sustainable cementitious waste materials.

Behaviour and microstructural characteristics of lime-GGBS-treated kaolin clay contaminated with gypsum (2023)
Journal Article
Jeremiah, J. J., Abbey, S. J., Booth, C. A., & Kashyap, A. (2023). Behaviour and microstructural characteristics of lime-GGBS-treated kaolin clay contaminated with gypsum. Materials, 16(2), 874. https://doi.org/10.3390/ma16020874

In this experimental study, the physico-mechanical and microstructural properties of sulphate-bearing clays have been investigated. Sulphate bearing soils constituted by mixing kaolin and gypsum at 0%, 15%, 25%, and 35% gypsum contents were treated w...
