This paper is the second of two companion papers and presents the results of an experimental investigation undertaken to evaluate the mechanical properties of sand specimens grouted with various mixtures of microfine cement (MC-500) and sodium silicate. Unconfined compression, Brazilian tensile, and drained and undrained triaxial compression tests are used to evaluate the strength and stress-strain behavior. Where appropriate, the results of tests on grouted sand arc compared to those obtained from tests on neat grout (mixtures of cement, silicate and water) and ungrouted sand.
