Artificial Soil, Recharge Medium, Subgrade


Rapid rate of increase in urbanization and development has increased the plastic waste generation. As the plastic in non-degradable, it remains in the environmental for several years and cause several problems. Hence, Plastic waste is a huge environmental burden and disposal of plastic waste is one of the major problems in the city. In this study, the plastic particles with predefined sizes are made from the plastic waste. Plastic particles will be mixed with the natural soil with various proportions to make the artificial soil. From this, the test samples will be prepared under the various field conditions. Double ring infiltration test will be carries out to find the infiltration rate of various samples. The suitability of artificial soil for rain water harvesting will be computed by the interpretation of test results.
