The objective of this project is to verify the feasibility of using a metakaolin-based geopolymer (MBG) to stabilize sulfate-rich soils. This study includes the comparison of the stabilization effectiveness among MBG, lime, and Portland cement through testing the unconfined compressive strength and measuring vertical strain in swelling tests.
