The use of laterites as building materials in the tropical countries, in particular in the road embankments and restraint dikes of mining discharge is strongly increased. After their implementation in tailings sites to dyke the mining discharges to avoid diffuse pollution in the environment, these lateritic materials are submitted to complex solicitation which can influence in a very important way their hydromechanical properties. In most of the cases of breaks of dikes, hydraulic fracturing is the evoked main cause. Several authors analyzed the properties of soils under mechanic and hydric solicitation. However, these analyses do not take into account the chemi...
