Black Cotton (BC), California Bearing Ratio (CBR), Optimum Moisture Content (OMC), Maximum Dry Density (MDD), Clay of Medium Plastic (CI)

Abstract:

Stability of any structure depends on behavior of soil under it. In case of construction in soft soil, ground improvement by soil stabilization or soil reinforcement is usually adopted. Many organic natural fibers like rice husk, sisal, jute, bamboo, palm fibre and coir fibre etc. are used for stabilization purposes and different engineering properties are determined like liquid limit, plastic limit, specific gravity, OMC, MDD, UCS, CBR etc. The coir fibre being biodegradable material will decay under extreme environmental conditions such as polluted water, contact with leachate, cycles of wetting and drying, cycles of freezing and thawing and so on. In general, life of coir fibre in soil is expected to be 8-10 years. Therefore under different environmental conditions it may degrade fast. The gain in soil strength or decrease in swelling might be lost. This aspect is not studied so far. Hence in this work this is attempted.
