Research on Utilization of Waste Materials in Soil Stabilization

Research on Utilization of Waste Materials in Soil Stabilization

Soil strength plays a vital role in the construction field. The main purpose of this project is to stabilize red soil with the help of various waste materials. The waste materials used are rice husk ash, lime, ground granulated blast furnace slag and coconut coir fiber. These waste materials have been mixed with the soil in the ratio 10%, 20% and 30% and subjected to various tests Specific Gravity Test, Sieve Analysis Test, Plasticity Index Test, Standard Proctor Test, Unconfined Compression test and California Bearing ratio test. A comparative increase in soil strength was found with all the waste materials. Thus, ultimately the soil is stabilized with the help of these waste materials.
