Soft clay formations are extensively located in many areas around the world. The significant high compressibility and low shear strength of these formations impose challenging engineering problems. Major problem that zinc manufacturing industries face today is the disposal of jarosite waste. When it is mixed with 2 % lime and 10 % cement, the resulting stable material is called Jarofix. Presently, utilization of these waste materials is much more crucial and concern in India due to large amount of production and having very limited application. This study depicts the experimental investigations into the effect of jarofix content on the compressibility parameter of clayey soil. Recently studies shown that the addition of jarofix resulted in enhanced properties of soil. A series of laboratory tests were carried out considering, additive contents of 2, 4, 6%. One dimensional consolidation and laboratory cassagrandes test were carried out. The aim of this paper is to study the consolidation characteristics of jarofix stabilized soil from consolidation test and empirical correlation proposed by terzaghi.
