Abstract :

Black cotton soil exhibits the properties of high swelling and shrinkage. Such soil must be improved to be used as a foundation material. Number methods are available to improve compaction and other properties of soil. In the present study, the effect of jute fibers mixed randomly on compaction properties (OMC and MDD) of soil is studied. Inclusion of randomly distributed fibers makes the soil mass homogeneous and maintains isotropy in strength. The natural fiber reinforcement causes significant improvement in shear strength and other engineering properties of soil. In the present study, an experimental study is conducted on locally available soil stabilized with jute fiber. Jute fibers in the percentage of dry weight of soil are randomly mixed with soil and Standard Proctor test is conducted to find compaction characteristics (OMC and MDD) of soil. The percentage of jute fiber by dry weight of soil was taken as 0.25%, 0.75%, 1.25% and 1.50%. in the present investigation the lengths of fiber was taken 20mm and 30mm and two different diameters 2mm and 3mm were consider for each fiber length. The effect of length and diameters of fiber on compaction test of soil were also investigated.
