Dataset

Description

Description of data presented in .csv files:
Fig 3a presents the shear stress - horizontal displacement of treated (T) and untreated (U) sand under applied normal stresses of 25, 51 and 100kPa
T means Treated specimen (i.e. with fungal growth present)
U means Untreated specimen (i.e. control; no fungal hyphal growth present)
T_25kPa means Treated specimen at normal stress of 25kPa;
U_51kPa means Untreated specimen at normal stress of 51kPa; and so on.
Fig 3b presents the volumetric behaviour of treated and untreated soils under applied normal stresses of 25, 51 and 100kPa
Fig 3c presents the respective with peak and ultimate shear stress values along with the corresponding normal shear stresses from which the failure envelope of treated and untreated soil were derived.
Fig. 4a presents the shear stress - horizontal displacement of treated (T) and untreated (U) specimens with varied amounts of lignocel.
U_94S:6LIG means Untreated specimen composed of 94% sand and 6% lignocel
T_94S:6LIG means Treated specimen composed of 94% sand and 6% lignocel
U_70S:30LIG means Untreated specimen composed of 70% sand and 30% lignocel
T_70S:30LIG means Treated specimen composed of 70% sand and 30% lignocel
U_50S:50LIG means Untreated specimen composed of 50% sand and 50% lignocel
T_50S:50LIG means Treated specimen composed of 50% sand and 50% lignocel
Fig. 4b presents the volumetric behaviour of treated and untreated specimens with varied amounts of lignocel
Fig. 5a presents the shear stress - horizontal displacement of specimens treated (T) and untreated (U) with homogenate and tested immediately after mixing (day 0) and 1 month after.
UFH_94S:6LIG means Untreated with Fungal Homogenates and composed of 94% sand and 6% lignocel
TFH_94S:6LIG (Day 0) means Treated with Fungal Homogenates; composed of 94% sand and 6% lignocel; tested immediately after mixing
TFH_94S:6LIG (1 month) means Treated with Fungal Homogenates; composed of 94% sand and 6% lignocel; tested after 1 month of incubation/fungal growth.
Fig. 5b presents the volumetric behaviour of specimens treated (T) and untreated (U) with homogenate and tested immediately after mixing (day 0) and 1 month after
