Application of Aqueous Polymers on Earthen Substrates

This study investigates the impact of application of a synthetic carbon based polymer on physical properties of an earthen substrate. For this assessment, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Microspectroscopy will be utilized to examine consolidation and dispersion. Polymer impact on compressive strength will be measured with a Universal Testing Machine (UTM). Additionally climate modeling will be used to access the role of environment in initial application.
