Abstract

Laboratory experiments to study the impacts of electrokinetic processing on compressibility of a tropical residual soil were performed. Injections of selected chemicals (CaCl2, AlCl3 and H3PO 4) at the anodes or cathodes depending upon the ion types into the soil samples were carried out in cylindrical electrokinetic cells via applications of 30 V DC electrical potential for 168 hours. Four different electrokinetic systems utilising different anolytes and catholytes (DW-DW, Al-DW, Ca-DW and DW-PA) were employed to treat the soil samples, which were compacted at 90% of the maximum dry density. Results of compressibility tests on the electrokinetically treated soil were compared to samples that were not electrokinetically treated. The DW-PA treated soil near the cathode showed a significant reduction in compressibility whereas other systems showed no significant changes.
