Abstract :

Stabilization of soil is important to enhance the engineering properties of expansive soil like strength, volume stability and durability. During such process some unavoidable delays occurs between mixing the stabilizers with the soil and compaction of the stabilizers mix, which affects the properties of stabilized expansive soil. The effect of compaction delay on the properties of black cotton soil mixed with fly ash and lime has been investigated. Compaction tests (Modified proctor) and Unconfined Compressive Strength Tests were conducted on the soil-fly ash-lime mix (10%, 20%, 50% fly ash and 0%, 3%, 5% lime) with time delays (time delay between mixing the contents with water and compaction) 0, 12, 24, 48hrs. The prepared samples were tested to find out the effect of delayed compaction on dry density and unconfined compressive strength. The results obtained indicated that compaction and strength characteristics decrease with increases in fly ash-lime content as well as increases in compaction delay.
