Impact of Granulated Blast Furnace Slag on Index Properties of Expansive Soil

Authors(4) :-Rashmi Bade, Mohd Sarosh Naim Sheikh, Pranali B. Wasnik, Abhishek R. Shahu

Black cotton soil is an expansive soil. These are prone to large volume changes as the water content keeps on changing. Black cotton soil has low bearing capacity and high shrinkage and swelling property. These soils content the mineral montmorillonite. The expansive soil is feeble and has to improve for the construction projects. To stabilize the soil by using waste material can enhance the index properties of an unstable soil .By maintaining the proportion waste ingredient waste for an economic replacement of lavish additives such as chemical additives, using Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GBFS) can be valuable. Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GBFS) contain Cao (30-50 %), SiO2 (28-38%), Al203 (8-24%) and Mg0 (1-18%) which are acceptable for the advancement of an expansive soil. Tests are conducted for the index properties to increase the properties of soil.
