Abstract :

Soil stabilization is one of the most important processes which is broadly used in the road and foundation construction, because it modifies the engineering properties such as strength & resistance to penetration. Fly ash is creating environmental pollution & large area of costly land required for its disposal. Fly ash is proved to be good material for geotechnical application. The BC soil is not suitable for sub grade and its swelling & shrinkage characteristics cause damages to the structure. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of fly ash on unconfined compressive strength & resistance to penetration of BC soil. A series of laboratory unconfined compression strength test and California bearing ratio test were carried out. The study concludes that the addition of fly ash resulted in appreciable increase in UCS & CBR of the soil. The percentage of fly ash was varied from 10 to 50% & peak strength was observed for fly ash content, in between 20 to 30%.
