Experimental Study on Properties of Black Cotton Soil Mixed Stone Dust and Sisal Fiber IJTSRD
Experimental Studies were conducted to see the effects on strength behavior of Black cotton soil using stone dust and Sisal fiber. In this study, the stabilizing effect of sisal Fiber Natural Fiber on soil properties. Keeping this in view an experimental study is conducted on locally available i.e. expensive soil mixed with varying percentage of Stone dust and Sisal fiber. Soil samples for California bearing ratio CBR tests are prepared at its maximum dry density MDD corresponding to its optimum moisture content OMC in the CBR mould without and with sisal fiber. Tests result indicates that both unsoaked and soaked CBR value of soil increases with the increase. Soaked CBR value increases from 3.97 to 9.75 and un soaked CBR value increases from 8.1 to 40.7 of soil mixed with stone dust and sisal fiber. Due to sisal fiber reinforcement CBR is increased resulting lesser thickness of pavements are used in construction works. Soil becomes ductile in nature. This is because of composite effect of sisal fibre Natural Fibre changes the brittle behavior of the soil to ductile behavior.
