[10] mentioned that the longer fiber was found to be more pronounced in increasing the energy absorption or toughness of the cemented soil.
Some southern home owners have removed wallpaper to find large patches of wallboard and framing replaced with a vast span of cemented soil and feces, known as carton, housing many thousands of squirming, milk-colored termites.

It was presumably due to the lack of friction mobilization between the fiber and the cemented soil matrix, which is probably related to the smooth nature of fibers.
The triaxial test is commonly used to study the mechanical properties of cemented soil materials [17], such as cemented carbide slag.

They believed that larger EPS bead content generated more weak interfaces between EPS beads and cemented soil [19].
Consoli et al., 1998 [13], added the randomly distributed fibers to cemented soil, conducted triaxial compression tests on the mixture, and concluded that the fiber reinforcement increased both the peak and residual strength and changed the cemented soil's brittle behavior to a more ductile one.
