An Experimental Study on Stabilization of Red Soil by G.G.B.S and Jute Fibre

Authors(2) :-Ch. Ravi Tej, Dr D. S. V Prasad

Stabilisation is a broad sense for the various methods employed and modifying the properties of a soil to improve its engineering performance and used for a variety of engineering works. In today‟s day soil stabilisation is the major problem for civil engineers, either for construction of road and also for increasing the strength or stability of soil and reduces the construction cost. In this thesis the soil are stabilised by ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) and this material is obtained from the blast furnace of cement plant, which is the byproduct of iron (from ACC plant, sindri). It is generally obtained in three shaped one is air cooled, foamed shaped and another is in granulated shaped. The use of by-product materials for stabilisation has environmental and economic benefits. Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) material is used in the current work to stabilise soil (clay). The main objectives of this research were to investigate the effect of GGBS on the engineering property (optimum moisture content and maximum dry density, plastic limit, liquid limit, compaction, unconfined compressive strength, triaxial and California bearing ratio test) of the soil and determine the engineering properties of the stabilised. Granulated shaped blast furnace slag is most suitable for increasing the strength of the soil and for this we check the following property of soil. GGBS are added from 0% to 25% by dry weight of soil, first of all check the all soil property at 0 % (no GGBS) and then compare after addition of GGBS from 5% to 25%. The investigations showed that generally the engineering properties which improved with the addition of GGBS. The addition of GGBS resulted in a dramatic improvement within the test ranges covered in the programme. The maximum dry density increased and the optimum moisture content decreased with increasing GGBS content and at 25% we got the maximum value of dry density.
