Abstract

Soil-cement backfills have been analyzed, designed and tested for the Alto Lazio Nuclear Power Plant in Italy. Extensive analyses were performed to evaluate the stability of and stresses in soil-cement foundation backfills. Soil-structure interaction was also analyzed. The minimum required cement content for foundation and general backfills was established and verified by means of laboratory and field tests. Foundation backfills were designed for two major buildings of the plant.
