Cement stabilization is commonly used for improving soft soils and the mechanical behaviour of cemented pure clay has been well documented. However, limited studies have investigated the effect of sand in a cement-clay matrix because the conventional water to solid (solid includes soil and cement) ratio cannot be simply used to characterize the behaviour of cemented binary mixture. The water holding capacity of the mixture reduces with increase in sand content, when the water to solid ratio is kept constant. In this study, the ratio of water to clay and cement is kept constant, so that the effect of sand content could be studied. The materials used in this study are kaolin clay, sand with D50 of 0.71 mm and Ordinary Portland cement type 1. Sand content varies from 0% to 50% and curing time is kept constant at 7 days. We used three ratios of water to clay and cement which correspond to 139%, 104% and 78%. The isotropic yield point increases with increase in sand content and cement content, while it reduces with increase in water content. A power function captures the variation of yield point with the ratio of water to cement and clay.
