dc.description.abstractSulfate soils' stabilization is a very interesting subject with technical, economic and environmental implications. The difficulty of their stabilization is due to the fact that the usual stabilizer additives are based on calcium. In these soils, sulfate combines with the calcium from the additive and the aluminum from the clay, resulting in a highly hydrated expansive mineral named ettringite. This provokes the swelling of the treated material and even its destruction. This study analyzes the result of the substitution of the calciumbased additives by one alternative additive based on magnesium, an industrial byproduct named PC-8, in the stabilization of five different sulfate soils. From a mechanical point of view soils treated with PC-8 reached similar resistance values to the lime treated ones, of about 2–3 MPa for 4% dosage and 2–5 MPa for 8% dosage, being usually better with the PC-8 results than with the lime ones. When PC-8 was combined with GGBS the resistance values increased up to 11–13 MPa and the lime-GGBS reached the 6–7 MPa. The natural swelling of the soils treated with PC-8 decreased substantially and maintained constant even for immersion at long-term. In the case of the soils treated with lime, long-termswelling increased up to very high values even in the case of soilswithout natural swelling. XRD analysis of these samples demonstrated the existence of ettringite in 4 of the 5 soilswhen theywere treated with lime and there was not expansive minerals in the PC-8 treated soils, agreeing with the swelling observed behavior of the soils when treated with both additives.en
