Shear Strength Behavior of Lateritic Soil with Nickel Slag Mixture
Rusdiansyah | Candra Yuliana | Ida Barkiah | Ayu Mustika Dewi
Abstract: Laterite soil is an embankment soil that is often used because it is easy to find and is widely found in South Kalimantan. However, this land has many shortcomings to be used as embankment soil. This is because the lateritic soil has a clay content and a high Plasticity Index (PI) value. So the quality is still questionable to be used as landfill. To overcome this, it is necessary to improve or stabilize the lateritic soil. In this study, the lateritic soil was stabilized by the addition of slag nickel. This study aims to determine the physical characteristics of laterite soil after being given a mixture of nickel slag addition, this study also aims to determine the effect of the percentage of nickel slag on primary consolidation (Sc) of laterite soil. As well as knowing the effect of the percentage of nickel slag on the parameters of shear strength in the form of cohesion (c) and shear angle (?). Consolidation and shear strength specimens were made with 90% of the optimum moisture content. The variations of the nickel slag mixture used in this study were 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, and 20% of the weight of the soil used. Based on the results of data analysis, the addition of a mixture of nickel slag in each sample variation can reduce the plasticity index value of the lateritic soil. In addition, the addition of nickel slag also affects the value of the primary consolidation settlement value (Sc) of the laterite soil. The addition of the percentage of nickel slag also affects the parameters of the shear strength of the soil, for the cohesion value (c) of the laterite soil experiences a value that decreases with the increase in the percentage of nickel slag. Meanwhile for the shear angle (?) of the laterite soil, the value increases with the increase in the percentage of nickel slag.
