Abstract
The strength of a fine-grained lateritic soil from three (3) different localities on Abuja – Lokoja road where road failure happen was treated with rice husk ash (RSA), cement and sodium silicate activator (SSA), with varying percentage examined by means of Atterberg, Compaction and triaxial shear tests. Conductivity has the highest mean (144.67mg/l) and followed by total dissolved solid (TDS) (94.00mg/l) while salinity recorded the lowest (0.06mg/l). Also, TDS recorded the highest Standard deviation (1.10mg/l).
Keywords: Geopolymer, Cluster, Construction, Sodium silicate, Abuja.
