Abstract :

Lot of natural fiber available they are cheap, locally available and ecofriendly. White and brown which are used in this study. Because of high lignin content coir fiber are strong than other natural fiber and abundantly available in some parts of south and coastal regions of India. Most of these studies were conducted on soil samples in triaxial, unconfined compression and direct shear tests. Present locally available soil i.e. clayey soil mixed with varying percentage of coir fiber. Soil sam California bearing ratio (CBR) tests are prepared at its maximum dry density corresponding to its optimum moisture content in the CBR mould without and with coir fiber. The percentage of white and brown coir by dry weight of soil is taken as CBR test are conducted in the laboratory. Test result indicates that, for brown coir maximum CBR values of soil –coir achieved value can be achieved with 0.75%
