Abstract

The purpose of soil stabilization is to improve strength and durability for industrial project such as paving, building construction, railway laying and water way improvements .Black cotton soils with high potential for swelling and shrinking as a result of change in moisture content are one of the major soil deposits of India. Bagasse ash is being accumulated in large volume which is deposed into the environment through dumping yards causing damage to the ecosystem. It is estimated that approximately more than 70% of the waste are deposed in improper way in various areas. The performance of bagasse ash stabilized soil was evaluated using physical and strength performance tests namely-Plastic index, Specific gravity, Compaction, California Bearing Ratio (CBR) and Standard proctor test. These tests were conducted in order to evaluate the improvement strength characteristics of the sub grade soil. Hence use of such advanced materials in road construction can prove efficient in increasing the strength of soil in turn reduce the project cost, as well as we can reduce the effect on environment by using bagasse.
