Improve the Properties of Permeability of Dune Sand by Using Square Pieces of Waste Plastics (Milk Polythene)

Download Paper


Soils are permeable materials because of the existence of interconnected voids that allow the flow of fluids when a difference in energy head exists. A good knowledge of soil permeability is needed for estimating the quantity of seepage under dams and dewatering to facilitate underground construction. This paper deals with the stabilization of dune sand with waste plastic square pieces as admixture to enhance the properties of permeability of dune sand and well as to reuse and reduce the waste plastic these has increased year by year and the disposal becomes a serious problem. As the fine sand has very low bearing capacity and compressive strength along with nil cohesion, thus the construction of any structure on fine soil required stabilization. This analysis discusses the potential of dune sand stabilization with square pieces of plastic as admixture. Present work has been taken up by addition of 5mm square pieces of waste plastic as admixture. The varying percentage 0.15%, 0.25, 0.50%, 0.75%, 1% of square pieces of plastic waste were mixed with dune sand of density 1.58gm/cc (M.D.D.). Permeability properties and performance of dune sand and composite material were observed experimentally. On the basis of observations, conclusions have been drawn on values of coefficient of permeability.
