Rizwan Khan, Ankit Kumar, Arvind Kumar
Clayey Soil, Coconut Fibre, quarry Dust & CBR.
The aim of this research is to stabilize the clay soil with quarry dust and waste coconut fibre and improved other poorest soil properties to used as subgrade. A soil sample was collected from locally available and preliminary tests were conducted to identify the type of soil and it was obtained from the results that the collected soil sample was a poorly graded. Afterword different tests were conducted such as Modified proctor Compaction test, UCS, and CBR to examine the different geotechnical properties of the identified soil. Above these Tests were also conducted on the mixed soil with quarry dust and coconut fibre in varying percentage. From the test results analysis it was found that quarry dust and coconut fibre enhanced the CBR value of clay soil.
