Abstract :

Stabilization of soil is important to enhance the engineering properties of expansive soil like strength, volume stability and durability. The Black cotton soils are very hard when dry, but lose its strength completely when in wet condition Expansive soils (black cotton soil) are a worldwide problem that poses several challenges for civil Engineers. In this work an attempt has been made to stabilize the soil using Fly ash and Lime. Experimental work has been carried out with 5%, 10%, and 15% of Fly ash as well 4 %, 8 % and 12% of lime content. The experimental work is based on different percentages of Fly ash and lime content in soil on tests for soil Liquid limit, Plastic limit, C.B.R. test, Unconfined Compression Test and Standard Proctor Test. The aim is to improve the engineering properties of the black cotton soil.
