Geo-Technical Properties of Soil, OMC & MDD of Soil


The load-bearing capacity of the soil needs to be improving for better strength and performance of the pavement. Stone dust is an easily available material that can be obtained as industrial waste. 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% stone dust added to the soil for observing the geotechnical properties of soil. A series of test results observed that 40% of stone dust gives a higher strength of the soil. The addition of stone dust is an economical method for enhancement of load-bearing capacity of the soil.
