Title

WASTE PLASTIC FIBRE REINFORCED SOIL

Abstract

The main objective of this study is to investigate the use of waste fiber materials in geotechnical applications and to evaluate the effects of waste polypropylene fibers on shear strength of unsaturated soil by carrying out California bearing ratio tests and unconfined compression tests. The results obtained are compared for various tests and inferences are drawn towards the usability and effectiveness of fiber reinforcement as a replacement for deep foundation or raft foundation, as a cost effective approach. Randomly distributed fiber reinforcement technique has successfully been used in a variety of applications such as slope stabilization, road sub grade and sub base etc. This is a relatively simple technique for ground improvement and has tremendous potential as a cost effective solution to many geotechnical problem. Keeping this in view the present study was taken up. In this study a series of compression tests under different confining pressures were conducted on soil sample without and with plastic reinforcement. Plastic fibers are similar to the roots of trees and vegetation which provide an excellent ingredient to improve the soil and the stability. Safe and Economic disposal of solid wastes and development of economically feasible ground improvement techniques are among the important challenge being faced by the engineering community. In this investigation, an attempt has been made to study the possibility of utilizing fibers these are the solid waste for stabilization of soil, since bulk utilization fibers is feasible in the case of geotechnical applications like construction of embankments, earth dams, and highway and air field pavements.
