Abstract

Modification means the minor change in soil property while as improving soil’s engineering property is known as soil stabilization. Soil stabilization means the enough changes in engineering properties hence made to allow field construction. As per Thagesen (1996) any process which improves a soil material and makes it more stable is called as stabilization. Soil is the most important and critical element that influences the success of any construction project. Soil can play the role of one of the raw materials in construction or it can be the part of its foundation. This research involves the characterisation and stabilization of the soft soil present at Ganderbal site. In this study lime is used because of its various advantages. One of main advantage of using lime is its cost effectiveness as compared to materials like cement etc. As we know lime has been used since past and many researchers have studied it also. The soil here is not only treated with lime but also a specified amount of clay too. Hence its strength is further increased by clay content. Various reactions like cation exchange, flocculation and pozzolonic reaction occur. To study effect of lime and good earth on the soil sample and determining their percentage at which the soil gets maximum strength is the main aim or purpose of this project. After conducting various tests we collected lot of information about the effect of lime and clay on soil sample. From the direct shear test results we conclude that the value of cohesion increases on addition of lime with an optimum percentage of 4%.On addition of the filler material we can observe a rise in strength. With the addition of lime the stability increased due to its chemical nature of reacting with water by virtue of which it reduces the water content of the sample.
