To utilize soft clayey soils as construction materials, granulating technique is introduced. The technique converts soils dredged at ports and harbors to granular materials by adding small amounts of cement and polymer. Particle density, particle shape and particle distribution characteristics of cement-treated granulate soil (CTGS) as well as stress–strain relationships were investigated from laboratory tests. The results showed that CTGS was a lightweight material because small voids may be included in the particles. In addition, it was found that CTGS showed ductile behavior with the volume contraction when CTGS was subjected to shear deformation even if CTGS was initially prepared by compaction.
