Abstract
Locally available soils are readily available, and relatively cheap, but are often problematic and do not perform required geotechnical properties satisfactorily. In developing countries like India, needs for infrastructural and industrial projects are increasing rapidly. These require locally available soils with good bearing capacity and strength properties. But, soil with required characteristics is not available at locations. In such situations, soil improvement or modification plays major role. To improve these properties the common method followed is stabilization. Soil stabilization using chemicals has been widely recommended for developing countries for the construction of various elements of pavements. In the past few years, many researches were focused on utilization of chemicals. Utilization of chemicals like sodium silicate, calcium oxide materials in soil stabilization is one of the alternative methods where high volume consumption is possible. It also provides good material for construction activities. In this research an attempt was made to evaluate the effectiveness of locally available soil blended with Sodium Silicate and Calcium Oxide for soil stabilization by investigating the geotechnical characteristics in the laboratory.
