Abstract

In India approximate 52.6 million hectares of the land region are secured with black cotton soils. The Black cotton soils are hard when dry; however lose its quality totally when in wet condition. Black cotton soils are an overall issue that represents a few difficulties for structural Engineers. Different techniques are adjusted to enhance the building qualities of far reaching soils. The dangerous soils are either evacuated or supplanted by great and better quality material or treated utilizing added substance. The present theory manages the properties of black cotton soils of SATI, Vidisha (M.P.), India. In this study, black cotton soil was stabilized using RBI Grade-81. The locally available Black cotton soil is procured from SATI, Vidisha Campus and used for this investigation. RBI Grade-81 has been used as soil stabilizer in this study. Various Laboratory tests were performed to study the effect of RBI Grade-81 on the soil. It reduced the Plasticity and swelling characteristics of soil. It was also observed from the test results that with the increasing dosage of RBI and with increasing curing periods, it effectively improved the CBR values of soil.
