The existing soil at a particular location may not be suitable for the construction due to poor bearing capacity and higher compressibility. Particularly clays exhibit generally undesirable engineering properties. They tend to have low shear strengths and also loose shear strength further upon wetting or other physical disturbances. The improvement of soil at a site is indispensable due to rising cost of the land, and huge demand for high rise buildings. So recent research could be beneficial in finding the different ways of utilizing waste materials in most efficient ways like rice husk ash, fly ash, used tyres etc. So replacement of natural soils aggregates and cement with solid industrial by-product is highly desirable.
