Abstract

•The addition of cornsilk fibers in cemented soil increases compressive and splitting tensile strength.•A strong linear relationship between compressive strength and splitting tensile strength is given.•Models for estimating the compressive and splitting tensile strength are proposed.•Cement content is the most effective parameter on compressive and tensile strength followed by curing time and fiber content.
