Abstract
the black cotton soil is a type of problematic expansive soil which causes many problems in the construction of structures founded on them. It is having a swelling and impervious nature with poor geotechnical subgrade characteristics. In this research an approach is made towards the way of improvement in the various geotechnical properties of black cotton soil such as index properties, swelling characteristics, consolidation characteristics and strength characteristics by blending it with concrete waste. Hence, from these approaches, the impacting effect of concrete waste on the environment reduced due to optimum utilization of this concrete waste in the improvement in various properties of black cotton soil.
