Investigation Of Strength Properties Of Black Cotton Soil Stabilised With Fly Ash And Geo Reinforcement



An experimental program was undertaken to study the effects of polyester fiber inclusions and lime stabilization on the geotechnical characteristics of fly ash-soil mixtures. An Indian fly ash was mixed with expansive soil in different proportions. The geotechnical characteristics of fly ash-soil specimens, lime-soil specimens and lime-fly ash-soil specimens mixed with different proportions of randomly oriented fibers were investigated. Lime and fly ash were added to an expansive soil at ranges of 1–10% and 1–20%, respectively. Test specimens were subjected to compaction tests, unconfined compression tests and split tensile strength tests. Specimens were cured for 7, 14, and 28 days after which they were tested for unconfined compression tests.
