Abstract

Abstract : Soil is the basic of every civil engineering construction, thus soil plays an important role in every field of civil engineering. In India expansive soil is popularly known as black cotton soil and it is the most problematic soil when it comes to construction. Expansive soil is rich in montmorillonite which causes shrinkage and swelling. Thus it is need for civil engineers to improve the properties and strength of expansive soil. Around 70% of land in India is agricultural land and amount of waste collected from the agricultural land is also more. Thus it is necessary to dispose the waste material occurring from agricultural lands. Some organic waste can be used as stabilizers because of their contents and the properties it holds. Along with it safe disposal of industrial waste also become a basic need. Currently disposal of industrial waste is a big concern, also agricultural waste disposal is also a problem. In this project a brief research is done in which industrial waste such as sugarcane straw ash (SCSA) and agricultural waste such as wheat husk ash (WHA) both used as soil stabilizers in expansive soil to improve the strength of soil by defusing various percentage of WHA & SCSA such as 3%, 5%, 7%, 9% and 11% and conducting tests such as Atterberg's limit, Standard proctor test, CBR test, UCS test. The main objective of soil stabilization is to increase shear strength and decrease the compressibility of the expansive soil. These tests are experimented and proved by the standard tests IS 2720 and finally concluded that test results improve the geotechnical properties of the soil.
