Abstract

In modern days, engineers have to face different kinds of problems like construct heavy structure and heavy mobility. But some places on earth soil have poor engineering properties like bad Workability, low bearing capacity and strong compressibility. So in order to improve the strength of soil, add some stabilizers. The aim of this study is to improve the engineering properties of soil using waste plastic powder. Clayey soils are poor in strength and they will result in poor pavement support and ultimately affects its life period. The soil stabilization is used to increase the strength of the soil by using the waste plastic material. The new technique of soil stabilization can be effectively used to meet the challenges of society, to reduce the quantities of waste, producing useful material from non-useful waste materials. Specimens are prepared to know the properties of soil with percentage of 0.6%, 0.8% and 1% of waste plastic powder. Some of the tests carried for the soil sample are Standard proctor test, unconfined compressive test, California bearing ratio and atterbergs limit test are performed to analysis compressive strength, Maximum Dry Density (MDD) and optimum moisture content (OMC) of soil mixture.
