Abstract
Coir products are proficient for low-cost applications, especially in developing countries because of its availability at low prices compared to its synthetic counterparts. They also render the advantages of ecofriendliness and biodegradability. Even though various natural products are being tried as a reinforcement material, coir gives better performance due to its high tensile strength, stiffness and durability. This Report evaluates the effectiveness of coir products in reinforcing soil. A systematic series of triaxial tests have been conducted to study shear strength parameters of soil reinforced with various coir products at differenent proportions and to determine strength and stiffness characteristics of coir reinforcement.
