Durability Test of soft soils stabilized with cement and lime waste

    Dr. J.B.Oza


ABSTRACT Saurashtra is the western part of the Gujarat state. It is linked with the capital city by only national highway-8A. All 11 districts of the Saurashtra are linked by state highways, district roads, and rural or village roads.[1] The major soft soils of this region are black cotton soils, red soils, and saline sands. The existence of expansive soils, red soils, and saline soils are causing big issues for the sub-grades of these roads. With the increase in vehicles on the roads, repeated wheel loads are also increasing. If sub-grades are not stabilized perfectly, the cyclic loading will harmful to both pavements and sub-grades. Indian Roads Congress recommends using the locally available materials including sub-grade soils and the stabilizing materials.[2] This paper is focused on the durability test of stabilized soils of the Saurashtra area using locally available stabilizing agents like cement waste and lime waste. Twelve cycles of wetting and drying process on samples of stabilized soils were performed. Also, the percentage of weight losses of the stabilized soil samples was determined after every cycle. Unconfined compressive strength test in normal state and after twelve cycles of wetting and drying state gives comparative results. Reduction in UCS value was 37% in cement waste stabilized black cotton soil, 9.6% in lime waste stabilized red soil and 5% in cement & lime waste stabilized saline sand. Weight loss in these three soils was observed at 1.55%, 1.15%, and 1.44% respectively. Indian roads congress and Indian standards recommendation are favourable to the tested soils. Keywords: Black cotton soil, red soil, saline soil, the durability of soils, unconfined compressive strength, cement waste, lime waste.
