Abstract
Enhancement of load carrying capacity and shear strength of soil has been improved by soil stabilization. The largely used soil stabilizing agent is fly ash, the waste from coal fired power plant, which is produced over 100 trillion each year creating thoughtful dumping as well as ecological complications in India. The wastes of industries and agriculture adversely affect the environment as high land area will be required for their disposal and when they disintegrate, results in the production of harmful gases causing, soil contamination, land fill space and many other hazardous effects. Soil stabilization is a process that improves the engineering properties of soil such as strength, volume stability and durability. Sugar Cane Bagasse Ash (S.C.B.A.), a waste material from the sugar industry is used as a stabilizer in modifying the properties of the soil. Bagasse is a fibrous residue of sugarcane stalks that remains after extraction of sugar and when incinerated gives the ash. The chemical analysis on bagasse ash was found to contain mainly silica, and potassium, iron, calcium, aluminum, magnesium as minor components and exhibit pozzolanic properties.
