Abstract

Cemented slurry is a mixture of cement, water and fine materials while uncemented slurry is of water and fine materials. Silica flour is used as the fine materials in this research. Cemented slurry is widely used in the industry especially in mine backfilling. It can be said that the importance in investigating the effect of geotechnical properties during slurry deposition is vital. However, previous studies have shown several parameters have been investigated with an exception on effective stress. Moreover, electrical resistivity method is a method used mainly to investigate the vertical and horizontal discontinuities in the ground. This research is to investigate the effect of effective stress during slurry deposition using electrical resistivity method. The correlation between investigation of effective stress during slurry deposition and electrical resistivity method is performed in this research as this method, Wenner method used is said to be affordable and simple. This research is to investigate whether this tool is appropriate and acceptable to determine the geotechnical properties of slurry. Laboratory model consisting of a soil box is fabricated to perform this experiment.
