Soil Stabilization, Black cotton soil, shredded rubber tyre, CBR.
The qualities of the soil are crucial to construction. When the qualities of the soil are not ideal for building, we employ a technique known as soil stabilization to improve the qualities of the soil. Numerous methods of ground improvement can be used to increase the soil's capacity to support weight. Shredded rubber tires are being used in this project to enhance the soil's qualities. As the number of motor vehicles continues to climb, hundreds of millions of tires are thrown out year worldwide. Recently, there has been a lot of interest in the use of tires in geotechnical engineering to increase the bearing capacity of black cotton soil. For the experiment, shred rubber tires in various proportions (4%, 6%, 8%, and 10%) based on the weight of the soil sample. The strength behavior of soil reinforced with shredded rubber fiber that is incorporated at random has been the main focus of the inquiry. The major goals are to use locally available resources to lower construction costs and improve the strength or stability of the soil. It was discovered that adding shredded rubber improved the soft soils with high compressibility and poor strength. The samples were put through the standard proctor test and the California bearing ratio. The outcomes are contrasted with those of unreinforced samples, and conclusions are made about the applicability and efficacy of fiber reinforcing as a low-cost alternative to deep or raft foundation and on pavement subgrade soil. The addition of shredded rubber and cement was found to improve the low strength and high compressible soft clay soils. We may conclude that shredded rubber fiber is a useful material for earth reinforcement. It is deemed dangerous to build engineering structures on soft or fragile soil. Numerous methods of ground improvement can be used to increase the soil's capacity to support weight. In this study, waste-derived shredded rubber was selected as the reinforcing material, and cement was added to the soil at three distinct percentages of fiber content—5%, 10%, and 15% by weight of soil—as a binding agent.
