Soil stabilisation is the process of enhancing the strength properties of soil by using materials such as lime, NaOH, polyethylene, rice husk, slag, brick dust, and so on. The amount of waste thermosetting fibre materials is rapidly increasing; these wastes Because thermosetting fibres are non-biodegradable and non recyclable fibre materials, they are commonly dumped or thrown, endangering the ecology and ecosystem. Thermosetting fibre materials are one of the waste fibre materials among these. Thermosetting fibre (charger,cooker handles ) was employed as an element in this study to improve the qualities of natural soil. Thermosetting fibre has been treated by 10% OPC cement and used to replace soil in a given percentage, and tests have been conducted. To determine the optimal amount of Thermosetting fibre, the soil was replaced with varied quantities of thermosetting fibre.Based on the findings of the experiments, it was discovered that replacing various soil qualities with 3.0 percent thermosetting fibre by weight of soil produces the best results. Unconfined Compressive Strength has increased from 3.24 kg/cm2 to 4.92 kg/cm2, indicating that it can now withstand higher loads. MDD has also grown in value from 1.56 g/cm3 to 1.72 g/cm3, equal to 3% thermosetting fibre. However, due to the low density and inert behaviour of thermosetting fibre, the percentage of increase is minimal. In addition, the value of Soaked CBR rises from 1.92 to 2.63, corresponding to 3% thermosetting fibre which shows that it can be utilised for pavement in locations with a high ground water table. And at 3% thermosetting fibre, the value of Unsoaked CBR increases from 4.09 to 5.46, indicating that we can reduce pavement thickness in pavement design, lowering construction costs in highway and railway construction, and therefore increasing the slope of the slope of the pavement for slope stability.
