Abstract
In line with other countries abroad, rural road construction in India may also adopt soil stabilization technique, at least in the areas, where stone aggregates is not available near construction sites and leads for carrying hard stone is uneconomical. Cement is a very popular stabilizer all over the world particularly for coarse grained soils. A mixture of other propertary additives is also being used for stabilization of various types of soils. In this, cement stabilization is used to modify soil properties along with small quantity of nanomaterials. This additive eliminates capillary rise and water ingress from top, and reduces water permeability. In this, stabilization has been done using cement and dose of nanomaterials. To improve engineering properties of soil and to reduce the thickness of the pavement layers. To improve load bearing capacity of soil to sustain under increasing traffic load condition. In this cement along with small quantity nano-materials was used for chemical stabilization of soil. So, Main aim for this is to improve load bearing capacity, improve engineering properties of soil, and reduce the cost of the construction. To construct the road with low cost, With the help of nano materials, to construct the road with zero bitumen. Materials used here are soil, cement, chemical solutions (nano material).
