Title

IMPROVEMENT OF SHEAR STRENGTH OF SOIL USING BITUMEN EMULSION

Abstract

The civil engineers must study the properties of soil, such as its origin and ability of water content, compressibility, shear strength and load bearing capacity. The civil engineering proposes the soil is unbonded (un-cemented) material. Starting from the base, soil is one of nature’s most abundant construction materials. Almost all type of construction is built with or upon the soil. The most important part of a construction is soil and its strength. If strength of soil is poor, then stabilization is normally needed. The foundation of structure is most important of entire structure. The foundation must have more strength to support the entire structure. The stability of the structure of depends upon the soil which one is used as the foundation. Every structure- building, bridge, highway, tunnel, canal or dam is founded in or on the soil surface of the earth. Therefore, the sub-grade soil normally replaced with stronger soil which is not economical. In this study an attempt has been made to increase the soil strength by adding the bitumen emulsion. In this study an attempt to find out the comparative results of various strength increasing tests on laterite soil by using the admixture bitumen emulsion. The bitumen emulsion is added in laterite soil at 10%, 12%, 14% proportions. The initial strength of the laterite soil is determined through various tests like Water content, Specific Gravity, Compaction, Unconfined Compression, and Direct Shear tests. The same tests have been conducted with laterite soil added with bitumen emulsion. The results obtained are then compared with laterite soil without emulsion and laterite soil added with emulsion.

Key Words

Laterite soil, Bitumen Emulsion, Shear Strength.
