Abstract
Soil is used sub base and base material, if strength of soil is poor, then stabilization is normally needed. Sub grade is sometimes stabilized or replaced with stronger soil. Sub grade quality is generally communicated as far as CBR. Consequently, in all, the pavement and the sub grade together must sustain the activity volume. In this research locally available red coloured literate type gravel soil is taken as experimenting material. Medium setting emulsion (MS) is used as stabilizing agent in this particular study. Bitumen sand stabilization is an effective process as bitumen makes soil stronger and improves resistance capacity against water and frost. Actually, bitumen is a very effective agent for sand stabilization but for soil stabilization it is being very costly. There is no any particularly following process or method for soil bitumen stabilization and most importantly there is no any code for bitumen soil stabilization in Indian Standard. This experiment study deals with some specific tests like Modified Compaction Test, CBR Test and the main objective is to optimize the strength of soil or improve the dry density property.
